Talented Creates Incredibly Detailed Sculptures On The Tips Of Pencils

·1-min read

A Bosnian artist has created incredibly detailed sculptures on the tips of pencils.

Instead of using pencils to create art, Jasenko Dordeciv turns the pencil into the artwork itself meticulously crafting each piece using the fragile graphite core as his canvas.

Dordevic uses just a small knife and chisel and incredibly doesn't even use a magnifying glass during the entire process.

Drawn to small-scale art ever since he was a child, Dordeciv experimented with a variety of mediums before he settled on pencil lead.

He was originally inspired to try his hand at miniature pencil sculpture by artist Dalton Ghetti - a pioneer in this form of art.

However, the talented artist has since brought his own style and expression to the medium, learning through trial and error along the way.

Places, pop culture icons and interpretations of famous works of art are all beautifully carved on to pencil tips.

Dordeciv's work has won awards and is now the feature of a permanent display at The Pencil Museum in Cumbria.
