Nebula: Graphite Portraits by Thomas Cian

One of Thomas Cian’s recently launched art series is “Nebula,” which was on display at the Malaka Gallery in Milan, the native city of the artist. Working with graphite and water and mixing it up with different textured techniques on paper, his drawings are both experimental and expressive—see “Laura” and “Two Girls,” both strong examples of how skillful his portraiture is. Also check out his latest editorial art for Nike and The Outline, his past work here, and other stuff on Behance and Instagram.nebula, graphite portrait of woman
