Portraits from Africa

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Rafael Comino Matas, a Spanish artist, uses one of the most inspiring, unique ways to capture his experiences in Africa –  journaling in the form of a sketchbook.

He captures powerful portraits of people that he meets along the journey.

His striking mix of different materials such as watercolor, pencil, and pen create beautiful effects in his handmade sketchbook. Both the inside and outside of the sketchbook are simplistic and unified. The work contains a strong native vibe, but what stands out the most is the amount of emotion in each of the portraits: the expressive eyes of the people tell a powerful story, and Rafael does a magnificent job sharing it.

Check out a few of the magnificent sketches below
