James Mylne, master artist in ballpoint, exhibition at ArtCatto in Loulé, Portugal. Another superb exhibition to be enjoyed featuring photorealistic portrayals of iconic celebrities. ArtCatto is open Monday to Saturday. Private viewings can be arranged on request.
Celebrating its 10 year anniversay this year, ArtCatto continues to bring amazing art to the Algarve.
The most recent exhibition that can be enjoyed at the gallery features the detailed, photorealistic works of James Mylne.
Known for his drawings in ballpoint pen, his technical abilities with the unorthodox art medium have earned Mylne recognition worldwide. The artist’s photorealistic likenesses of iconic celebrities attracted early media attention and continues to be one aspect of his output.
James Mylne only uses black ink when working, so to add colour, he employs acrylic, gouache, spray paint, magic markers and paint pens. James admits to being “passionate about detail”, which explains why one drawing can take between 120 to 250 hours to complete. The longest he has ever taken on one single drawing was 495 hours, which was on a recent artwork in 2021.
- The exhibition can be viewed at ArtCatto Gallery in Loulé.
- Monday to Friday from 10:00h to 18:00h
- Saturday from 10:00h to 13:00h.
