Young Artist Explores Hyperrealist Art

Realistic eye by Jatinder Singh
Preorder Tatoo book by Scene360

I recently spoke with Jatinder Singh, a tattoo apprentice and graphic design student in Toronto, Canada. He is self-taught when it comes to fine arts, and most of his pencil drawings are done quite quickly—like the realistic eye (above) was done in a few hours, and the Indian man (below) in 2 days. Singh comments about his interest in exploring different mediums and art styles, but lately he says: “I’ve just been doing a lot of photo-realism, because I want to further my skills and get better at drawing, and just challenge myself.”
