Australian artist Loui Jover creates striking artworks by using pen and ink on adhered together sheets of vintage book paper. This unique technique gives a special fragility to the images. Each piece displays a romantic love scene, complicated emotions of female faces, or stormy weathered silhouettes. Hand drawn stark black lines against printed words of the book pages reveal a back story that is complicated, compassionate, and relatable.
Artist says he draws obsessively every single day filling books with ideas, cartoons and drawings. Gradually his drawing abilities have developed in natural progression giving him the ability to freely use a number of distinct styles and approaches.
