Kelvin Okafor is a remarkable artist and this publication brings together forty-three of his drawings in high quality images. The unique technique that Kelvin has developed in order to create these masterpieces is shown through a set of videos going through the stages of ten portraits all the way from a blank sheet of paper to the final portrait.
There is a video interview with Kelvin, in which he speaks of his love of drawing people and the desire to create an emotional connection between the subject model and a viewer. The book also includes an article written by critic Estelle Lovatt on how his works go beyond being just ‘Photorealist’ drawings, and instead coins the term Emotional Realism
to describe the truly affective nature of his beautiful artwork.
