Drawings by T.S. Abe

This is the best pencil work i have seen in AGES. Born and raised in Brixton, South London, T.S. Abe is only 21 and has been featured in Dazed and Confused and had a solo show at the Electric Blue Gallery in Shoreditch, London, when she was only 19!
       I can't get over how rich her work is, the textures of the hair and skin is so striking, the work renders a great mixture of classical and contemporary influences where figures are often cocooned by whirling streams of  fabric or  baroque-style patterns.
     Sometimes I prefer looking at sketchbook work rather than actual finished pieces which is why I have been glued to Abe's  Blog for days now, its really beautiful, just pages of sketches and studies that really shows how hard she works and the strength of her ever growing versatility. Look here to see her website also.
Merry Christmas everyone!
