Coloured Kalashnikov AK47 drawings

These coloured Kalashnikov drawings were created for an exhibition at the Rosetta Window gallery, in London.
Each is a life-size study of a deactivated AK47 rifle, drawn life-size with oil pastel on coloured paper. Previous studies had been in black and white, drawing on coloured paper added another layer of information and abstraction.

Kalashnikov AK47 drawings (black & white)

These are multiple drawings of an AK47 assault rifle, drawn using oil pastel on paper on cardboard.
The rifle was a tough object to warm to, likely due to it’s purpose, so I often felt separate from it while I was drawing.
Black and white AK47 KAlashnikov rifles were displayed at LAPIEZA, Ground Floor Left Gallery and Rosetta Window gallery.
