about the video

Entering Bilal Asif’s studio is like going into a multicoloured world where nothing is quite what it seems.

Look closely and you’ll see the furniture is made out of pencils of all sizes, the arms of a settee where Asif is working are made out of giant pencils.

Asif is a passionate collector and he’s bought these pencils from all over the world.

He was taught to repair clocks by his father, but his fascination with pencils began when he was very young, and they inspired him to transform them into objects of art.
