Ben Heine é um pintor, ilustrador, retratista, caricaturista e fotógrafo Belga. Ele nasceu em Abidjan, Ivory Coast e atualmente vive e trabalha em Bruxelas. Ben também criou uma série muito legal que ele chamou de Pencil vs Camera.

Eu tenho tirado fotografias e desenhado por mais de 10 anos. Essa série « Pencil Vs Camera » é nada alem do resultado de muitos anos de exploração gráfica e da consequência lógica da minha evolução. Mas a ideia real veio por coincidência enquanto assistia televisão e escrevia uma carta ao mesmo tempo. Lendo minha carta antes de a colocar no envelope, vi a transparência da televisão por trás do papel. Eu então percebi que seria muito legal fazer algo semelhante, uma única imagem mostrando 2 ações diferentes. - Ben Heine

I took this photo in the "Palais des Beaux Arts" of Lille, France (I also made the drawing)


This is a photo I took in Lille, France. I also made the rough sketch...


This is the Atomium in Brussels, Belgium. I took this photo last Winter and edited it today


A sculpture, a photo, a drawing and friendship, all in once! :D


I took this photo in Belgium. I also drew the rough sketch. Yes I know, this one isn't really poetic, sorry. :)


This is a view of Utrecht from the Dom Tower, which is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands, at 112.5 metres (368 feet) in height. I took the photo and drew the 2 sketches (I've lived 7 months in Utrecht).


This is a view of the countryside in Braives, Belgium. I took the photo and drew the sketch (I wanted to make a very simplified composition on the paper to match the landscape).



I took this photo near Brussels (I also made the sketch)


This is a photo I took from Montmartre's hill in Paris, France. I also made the rough sketch. :D
