Paul Chiappe’s minuscule memories

Scottish artist Paul Chiappe creates pencil drawings derived from old photographs. These drawings are meticulously small (some so small that the use of a magnifying glass is required), and upon closer examination, reveal odd smudges and white-outs that seemingly construct distorted versions of the anonymous memories they represent.

One thought on “Paul Chiappe’s minuscule memories

  1. The smudges and white-outs really make the pictures very eerie and creepy, a really interesting use of inspiration though! I wonder what the photos were used for, and what the small size was for?
