It’s not often you come across art that speaks to you. I love artists that use simple, ordinary mediums to create little mind-bending masterpieces. Take those of Calcutta born artist Nina Chakrabarti. She uses ballpoint pens, felt tips, and pencils to transform regular photos of models into exotic and almost haunting prints of “voodoo queens.” For the last two images, Chakrabarti goes for the whimsical effect, using paint and pens to create pretty and colorful details.
Chakrabarti currently lives in London and collaborates with various publications to produce unique alternatives to fashion editorials.
