Dalton Ghetti, 49 year old Brazilian lives in Connecticut, USA but promises to leave people all over the world amazed. Let me not play with words and baffle you all. Allow me to introduce you all to one ingenious artist who is well known as the ‘pencil guy’. He got this name for the very good reason that he creatively plays with pencils.
Just give a sewing needle, a razor blade, a sculpting knife and pencils; you will be stunned to see the creative artwork he comes up with. Dalton started carving tree bark when he was a child and experimented with everything from soap to chalk before settling on graphite.
Pencil art you all may argue is not something new in the field of creative artwork, what makes Dalton definitely stand apart from the crowd? Quite a genuine question for all those who haven’t witnessed the masterpieces by him! Many artists have used pencils to create beautiful pieces of work but Dalton creates stunning masterpieces on the tips and leaves people spell bound.
Nothing other than stupendous images of the pencil art by the microscopic artist Dalton Ghetti can be showed off to make you believe the words of praise. (Scroll down to check them out). Carpenter by trade, Ghetti carves the graphite of the pencils in his spare time and doesn’t do all this for money.
From a line of 26 alphabets, a handsaw, single rice-grain-sized teardrop for every victim of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and many more, Dalton has sculpted a variety of pencil artworks for more than 25 years.
The amazing fact that many of you might not be aware of is that this creative genius doesn’t use magnifying glass but still has the ability to focus on even the minutest detail to create these masterpieces.
While crafting the masterpieces, many times the tips did break which frustrated him and made him feel really bad but he didn’t throw any of them. Dalton has a box full of more than 100 sculptures that have broken while working on them that he affectionately calls ‘the cemetery collection’. The longest Dalton has spent on one piece was two and half years on a pencil with interlinking chains. Pictured below are the masterpieces.
