Young Artist Depicts Hyperrealistic Portraits of Celebrities

Rafael Konishi is a super talented artist who depicts human portraits you could easily mix with photographs. His hyper-realistic drawings include images of celebrities, movie characters, and everyday people he encounters on the streets of his hometown Sao Paulo.

He began his artistic journey when he was just a little boy. Drawing has been his biggest passion since his earliest years. However, then his spectrum of interest was based only on depicting manga. He said in a statement for Bored Panda that he was introduced to realistic drawing seven years ago.

“I met realistic drawing in 2013, but I really improved myself in 2017. Since then, I have been trying to improve myself in this art that I love so much,” he said.

Konishi has already depicted hundreds of images using a graphite pencil and an eraser. He currently has reached over 7,600 Instagram followers who are in love with his artwork.

In his gallery, you’ll see portraits of Jackie Chan, Walter White from Breaking Bad, fellow artist Charles Laveso, and many more. If you want to see his remarkable creations, check out the gallery below. What do you think about his art?
