Online Gallery: Ink Drawings by Ben Tolman

In the spring 2016 issue of Drawing, we feature Ben Tolman as our New and Notable artist. Tolman’s ink drawings are painstakingly detailed, and they portray city life as both disorderly and structured. The interplay between reality and fantasy often makes its way into his pieces, which incorporate such elements as a crumbling complex full of zoo animals and an office building occupied by nude figures.

Here you can see a larger sample of Tolman’s work, including a couple details zooming in on small sections of these massive drawings. To see more, order or download your copy of the new issue of Drawing, or subscribe to the magazine.
