Alex Queral

I am always interested in new art. These days it is very hard to come across new interesting ideas, which aren’t massively OTT or extremely pretentious. We all enjoy new work that we may not have seen before.

When reading through the Metro, I came across an artist called Alex Queral who has carved some of the world’s most famous profiles into unwanted phone directories. He uses a scalpel to cut away bits of pages and create famous portraits, such as Ringo Starr and President Obama.

The time and effort he clearly spends on each individual picture is incredible.
