It’s hard to give such a creative individual like Christoph Niemann an ordinary title like “illustrator” but it would probably serve him best. Over the weekend he created this exquisite sketch simply titled “brush girl” and I rather liked it. Funnily enough may brain immediately goes to Degas when I see this. Perhaps it’s the skin tone, the face that’s hidden from view or the tone of the skin color. Either way it’s quite stunning for such a clever idea.
If you’re a fan of Niemann’s work you should take some time and read his interview over on FvF, it’s a treat and it gives you an idea of what his work ethic and ideals.
