Every once in a while, you come across something that literally makes you gasp. Pencil artists Dalton Ghetti from Connecticut (originally Brazil) is one such example. The thing is, he doesn’t use pencils to create his art. They are the art. Spending at many times, months on these sculptures, Dalton certainly understands a thing or two about patience. Countless times he’s gotten a bit nervous or simply impatient and broken a piece of work weeks in the making.
Still, the seemingly dead sculptures don’t go to waste. Dalton has a Styrofoam board with over 100 failed pieces stuck into the base, creating a sort of morbid sculpture in and of itself. Dalton has titled it “The Cemetery Collection”.
There’s some truly amazing work here. Hop inside to see a couple for yourself…
