5 - Pencil Vs Camera for Art Official Concept

© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||



A quick sketch showing the great singer Cesária Évora flying above her island in Cape Verde (Please see below some details and some other "PVsC" pictures). Cesária Évora is a Cape Verdean popular singer, nicknamed the "barefoot diva" for performing without shoes. She is perhaps the best internationally known practitioner of a mournful genre of blues music known as "Morna". Morna is based on the Portuguese fado and features bluesy vocals set against a background of acoustic guitars, fiddles, accordion, and cavaquinho, which is a small, four-string guitar. Évora has been accurately described as a cross between Edith Piaf and Billie Holiday.


Made for "Art Official Concept", a gallery in Cape Verde.


>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Up in the air: A famous woman (Cesária Évora) sits in a swing in the clouds, held aloft by two doves over a mountainous landscape" (Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)


Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in progress (with a small animation and an original musical composition).
