Portraying scenarios that are borderline magical, artist Michael Schall is a master of graphite, creating an intricate scenery series that is excruciatingly detailed.
While the works seem to be simultaneously realistic and out of this world, the artist explains that during his artistic process, he does not work from photographs, rather a collection of images. As he explains on his website, "I then use this structural understanding to create imagined worlds where these forms can do whatever I want them to, and it all looks believable, or almost believable." By piecing together his own landscapes from real world imagery, the artist manages to create stunningly surreal scenes.
Through his artwork, Michael Schall displays his imaginative renderings of a slightly alienesque world that eerily parallels our own.
