The Croatian Pencil Maestro

A 35-year-old self-taught Croatian artist is starting to make waves both in Croatia and abroad with his hyper realistic pencil portraits of famous people. Dino Devic, a sales rep from the Dalmatian town of Zadar, has never had any formal art training or been to any art school but his work has already been showcased at numerous exhibitions in Croatia and overseas, reports Dnevnik.hr.

His portraits, which he says he spends between 20-30 hours on, are so realistic that people have to take a double look to see in fact if it is not a photograph. Devic took up professional drawing just three years ago.

Besides portraits, Devic also does murals and has done them for a number of kids bedrooms and cafe walls.
