Adele’s eyes – Petar Svilan

Why did you pick this picture? 

I picked out this picture because it means a lot to me and I’m so proud of it. It represents important stage in my life, a stage where I advanced even more, my technique changed a lot and my overall point of view when it comes to drawing pure realism. This is also a drawing that got recognised by some really important people and it kinda pushed me into place where I got more credit and more appreciation on what I do which boosted my self-confidence a lot.


Where did the idea for this art come from?

The idea and a whole inspiration came from recent events that were happening in my life and from music because music has a very big influence in my life and on whole aspect of drawing. Of course the main inspiration and my biggest influence was a lady whose eyes are on this drawing and her name is Adele. A lot of my followers probably already noticed that I love her very much because I did a lot of drawings that represent her. Throughout my life she has been my life savior and her soulful voice in her music made a pretty big impact on me personally. So this drawing is kinda of my gift of appreciation to her. Someday I wish I could go to her concert and give her this drawing personally.

What does this art mean to you?

Sometimes as every other artist I have struggles with inspiration and I took my phone scrolled down the Instagram feed, found this picture and I decided I need to draw it. I spent a lot of time doing this drawing so I’m very proud of myself for acomplishing it. So when I look at this drawing I feel something special and it gives me the strenght to keep on with my hard work and dedication.

What can you tell us about yourself?

My name is Petar Svilan, I’m from very small town called Trogir in Croatia. I love to laugh and joke a lot and I can say I’m funny person haha. Basically I’ve been drawing my whole life it got serious when I finished primary school, when I was around 15 years old. From then I started to do more realistic portraits and drawings. My biggest inspirations are music and friends (especially my two best friends Ana and Nina who were with me through good and bad times, they always supported me and gave me a lot of confidence and I’m so grateful for having them in my life.)

What more can you tell us about your art?

What is special about art is that you can express whatever feelling you feel right there on the paper, drawing makes me feel at ease. I feel most comfortable when I put my earphones on with my favourite music, I pull out fresh piece of paper and I draw whole night long, thats when I create little world of mine where I can escape the reality.
