Dalton Ghetti Pencil Art

Art of the Day

Dalton Ghetti is a Brazilian born, Connecticut based artist who makes his pieces out of pencil tips. Ghetti is a professional carpenter, who has spent 25 years working this craft in his spare time. Obviously a fan of Elvis, he spent over a year working on that first featured piece, in which the details are just amazing. Ghetti does not sell his art, preferring to give it to friends as gifts.
He is currently working on a project in which he is slowly carving a tiny graphite tear for each victim of 9/11. He estimates it will take him 10 years to finish.
