About the Expert
Adrian Sanqui is a charcoal artist who uses several themes but mostly avant garde and surreal cartoons. Being active in visual arts from an early age, he started with colored drawings using oil pastels until they failed to make the kind of artwork he wanted. From colors he shifted to black and white drawings. He first attempted to adopt the techniques he managed to learn from his experiences to ink drawing.
Ink drawing still failed to meet his expectations. It was not until he tried using charcoals that he was satisfied. From then on he has used charcoal as his primary tool to produce a fine piece of art.
