Ballpoint pen art by Samuel Levy

Nov 28 2012, 10:30 am 0 Valentina Agostini

Art is beautiful because it’s easy. It captures people’s attention because starting from a simple idea it develops in ways that the most of people would have never imagined. This is indeed the case for Samuel Levy’s art. After many years spent painting on canvas, he decided to utilize ballpoint pens (combined with fluorescent colors) for drawing on different textures: from paper coasters to post-it and also simple paper. A simple method for creating art, using more mundane items than a paint brush: everyone uses ballpoint pens. And the evolution from daily things to something extraordinary is not art? With his street art and canvas, Samuel Levy wants to make art creation a daily thing. It never starts from a premeditated project. But it starts as soon as the pen touches the surface.
