Bosnian sculptor Jasenko Ðordevic has some really big ideas. In this stunning art series, he astounds the viewer by working very, very small. So small that his sculptures fit onto the head of a pencil tip. Ðordevic says that the material, graphite, is a temperamental medium: “since it is hard and fragile at the same time. One has to be very careful when working with black lead, as the smallest lack of attention can lead to its cracking.”
Ðordevic does an homage to several culturally recognizable scenes, such as this one from the Sistine Chapel’s “Genesis.”
Auguste Rodin’s “The Thinker.”
Scenes from nature and landscape photography.
The Roman Colosseum.
An old-fashioned camera.
Russian nesting dolls.
The head of a screw.
A baby elephant.
Ðordevic works with a heavy duty magnifying glass to get the exact level of detail perfect for these tiny graphic sculptures.
