Thomas Cian's watercolor drawings differ from some of his past work in that the images pay tribute to a sense of realism and hyperreality simultaneously.

The Milan-based illustrator has a talent for capturing his subjects with an incredibly insightful eye, proving the boundless creative skill that he has to offer. His graphite sketches and watercolor drawings take on immense detail while providing a dual-meaning that comes from his use of abstract and symbolic additions.

Many of the portraits take on hybrid subjects as well, showing internal states which work to reveal specific personal traits or emotions. An example of this includes the somber portrait of a man whose hoodie is interjected with a mysterious urban landscape.
