Although the work of self-taught artist Jono Dry is conceptually fascinating the real star of the show is the level of detail that he's capable of achieving through is precise and clever use of pencils. The South African artist creates hyper realistic works of art that depict animals and humans that have often been fused together with fairytale-like and abstract elements.

Often focusing on the smaller, overlooked characteristics of his subjects Dry's hyper realistic style comes into its own when he begins to depict delicate folds of skin or the glistening of a single water droplet - all elements that add to the impact of his drawings when viewed from a distance. You can see more of his work over on his websiteInstagram and Facebook.
