Nicholas V Sanchez is a New York City-based artist who creates magically accurate and life-like ink sketches using ballpoint pens in different colours.
The mastery displayed with this technique is evidence of his talent and skills. Making use of shadow and highlights, his work takes on a three dimensional quality. He also manages to capture the nuances of his subject matter in an honest and realistic way.
Nicholas, who has a BFA from the Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids and a MFA from the New York Academy of Art, has been chosen for artist residencies in Venice, the Dominican Republic and China. His work has been featured in New York Magazine, Vanity Fair and Vogue Italy, amongst others, along with exhibitions in New York, Italy, Venice and China.
