views: 2724

Nicolas V. Sanchez creates life-like drawings using multiple ink colors of ballpoint pens.  The detail in every piece and the shades of ink are very precise which makes his works look like actual photographs.  He has released small-themed books filled with his ballpoint pen drawings, with titles such as the Dominican Republic Residency, The Claim, Wang Family, China Residency, New York Academy Artists and Antepasados.  He is currently working on new six books.

Sanchez grew up in a rural area of Michigan surrounded with open farmland and dirt roads.  With his paternal grandfather’s Mexican roots, his bi-cultural experience, connection to nature and his family’s own interest in art have influenced his works.  He loves to draw about animals, people, space, family, and the world around him.

Aside from ink, Sanchez also works on oil paints and charcoal.  He has collections of large and small paintings
