Incredibly Realistic Pencil Art by Kohei Ohmori

These black and white images of models and everyday household objects appear to be the work of a photographer – but there is more to them than meets the eye. The breathtakingly lifelike drawings of 22-year-old Japanese artist Kohei Ohmori are just made with simple pencil, paper and pure dedication.

Kohei Ohmori, 23, has depicted objects including a model vintage car and a screw bolt and shared them online, where he has amassed a huge audience. He has also drawn an incredibly realistic depiction of American actress Scarlett Johansson, which also went down well on social media.

Ohmori’s Twitter followers call him a “mad genius” over the amount of manic attention he devotes to his work. Carefully-placed shades, highlights, and thin strokes of a pencil can produce seriously amazing effects. Armed with a box of ultra-sharp Mitsubishi pencils, any page becomes a blank canvas for Ohmori’s art. Check out his twitter to stay up to date!
