Drawings that take you on a travelling journey to Italy.
Italian Artist Francesco Messina, studied at Ecole Speciale d'Architecture in Paris, Tulane University in New Orleans and graduated at Confluence Institute for innovation and creative strategies in architecture, in Lyon, France. If travelling broadens the mind, then Messina has taken full advantage, of this step to personal growth.  His urban architectural drawing vary from beautifully detailed, to hyper realistic representations, of the real thing.  I have included close up details and a side by side, with one of his drawings and a picture of the real thing + some beautiful sketches, some of which are based on 1930s postcards.
