The Works of Pete TapangJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 24 Oct 2012
Pete Tapang is a self taught illustrator based in Frankfurt, Germany. On why he depicts women, Pete says, 'People like to draw what they feel is beautiful! Some people like buildings, landscapes, poodles, chipmunks, or even smurfs, but I think that the most beautiful creation that God ever made was the woman, so why not draw that. Throughout the years I have spent drawing, I realized that every artist has a job to do and I believe that my job as an artist is to cause a little trouble and get people to think a little bit. A man once told me that in a world of media bombardment, it's truly a great thing when a simple drawing can still shock and provoke an audience. It shows that the art still has power.'
