If you are in Paris and see a strange guy drawing very quickly on a small ticket, don't worry, you've just encountered Luc Grateau! The artist uses old Metro tickets as a canvas to create miniature portraits of fellow passengers riding the Parisian subway.

"Every day in Paris, you see dozens of different faces but by the evening, you can't remember any of them," Grateau says, adding, "For me, it is important to try and remember." Stats for Subway Ticket Portraits Trending: Older & Chilly
