2 Men Drawing

A drawing is more than a reminder of life – it should acquire a life of its own.

For more than forty years, 2 Men Drawing have been capturing events, buildings, animals and scenes from everyday life in two contrasting styles – one carefully worked, full of fascinating detail and always complete – the other quickly sketched with flowing lines like exuberant tangles of yarn and often incomplete.

Working in the life-sketching tradition of European masters such as Toulouse Lautrec and Feliks Topolski using charcoal pen and pencil, 2 Men Drawing capture the shifting moods of life in their city: faces, figures, buildings, the light of forgotten afternoons.
