Extreme Drawing–Ballpoint Pen Drawing Since 1950

With the rise of anti-art movements such as Fluxus in the 1960s, a number of notable artists made drawings using the ballpoint pen. The last decade has witnessed a steady increase in artists drawing with the pen, using approaches from the abject to the sublime.
