Elena Pancorbo's Tattooed Women

April 10, 2014

Born in 1990, artist Elena Pancorbo presents us with realistic yet artistically rendered colored pencil portraits. Elena knows when to put the pencil down, leaving some works appropriately "unfinished." These women are all tattooed with the same image, an homage to the artist's favorite medium: the leftover shavings of a colored pencil. Elena has found beauty in these spirally shapes and has found a way to incorporate them into her work.
