DESCRIPTION

Robert Knoke, a New York and Germany-based artist, works in the realm of portraiture, creating large-scale representations of a variety of cultural icons (which include such figures as Casey Spooner, Bernhard Wilhelm and Terence Koh).

These portraits are usually created with such mundane tools as ballpoint pens and marker, yet display an explosion of thin black lines and stark black-and-white forms comprising the facial essences of his subjects.
