Skull Illusion Art by Tom French

tom_french_07

This is a beautiful series of charcoal drawings by Tom French. His art shares similarities with the work of Charles Allan Gilbert, especially “All Is Vanity” (1892).

Notes about the artist (published in the “About” page):

His works are predominantly figurative. He carefully combines detailed photorealism with strong elements of abstraction and surrealism, focusing on the reflection of the conscious and subconscious mind. French’s work often treads the fine line between the beautiful and unsettling, combining technically tight, classical charcoal drawings with carefree, loose and ostensibly unfinished abstract forms. By fusing the technical with lively abstraction French brings life and movement to his compositions. His work seamlessly merges the use of academic tradition with contemporary urban realism.
