There are very few people in the world who can draw a portrait of you exactly the way you look using only salt, coffee or baking soda. Allan Pachino Wallace is one of them.
This young talent from Nassau, Bahamas, is so good that when he first shared some of his work online, people immediately fell in love with them. For Wallace, the experience has been uplifting.
“When I see people appreciating my work, I feel so blessed. It gives me the moral to continue doing what I love doing,” he says.
His most exciting moment was when one of his favorite celebrities, actor Kevin Hart, came across a portrait he had drawn of him and congratulated him for the job well done.
“It was simply mind-boggling,” he says.
In his attention-grabbing drawings, he uses salt, coffee and baking soda. He says he works with all sorts of medium, ranging from common oil paint, spray paint, to cereals and leaves.
