Chien Chu Lee Carves Pencils Into Architectural Sculptures


Chien Chu Lee from Taiwan is a self-taught pencil carving artist who has mastered a remarkable art form. Lee has been carving pencils since October 2010, but before that he was making small figurines toys for his children using bamboo sticks. Lee considers himself to be a very patient man and possessor of a very steady hand, which is not very difficult to perceive once you look at his creations. From near-exact replica of bridges to Dubai’s Burj Al Arab to the Great Wall of China, Lee has carved them all.
