When we saw San Francisco based artist Peter Combe's art at Scope Miami Beach earlier this month, we did a double take. From far away, his portraits of young men, which include icons like Mahatma Gandhi, are unassuming, looking more like photographs that have been blown up to a larger-than-life size scale. But upon close inspection, we realized that these tonal portraits were created using every day household paint swatches, carefully pinned into place, row after row, until a mesmerizing sense of realism is achieved.
