Drew Blair became interested in airbrushing while still at university – his first works were drawings on T-shirts that he made for himself and his comrades. After receiving a Master of arts degree, the artist did not give up drawing, but, on the contrary, continued to hone it with redoubled effort.

The technique of working with an airbrush Blair mastered himself – at the university, where he studied fine art, this science was not taught. And in general, despite more than 30 years of experience, the artist still considers himself a student and constantly learns new techniques. The virtuoso of photorealism believes that everyone can master the skill, but only very few are willing to devote so much time and effort to become a truly good artist.
