Delicate Line Portraits by Rafael Santiago

New York artist, sculptor and filmmaker Rafael Santiago created a series of portraits made of delicate lines titled 'Size Matters'.

"I started using inks and pens from the “instant gratification” point of view. It was quick, clean, and it forced me to make permanent decisions and to keep looking forward with every stroke of the pen rather than amend brushstrokes like when using oil paint or a pencil and eraser."

"The process of using the pen also created a “weaving” effect that plays with the idea of color theory and saturation. I choose not to blend color but rather, I let the weaving process create an aura and inner glow. This allows the line work to breathe. Color affects color and it is this game that intrigues me."
