Weird Beauty Face Paintings by Alexander Khokhlov

Alexander Khokhlov is a Russian photographer with specialty to photographic portraits, that also creates stunning Face Paintings.

Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov in collaboration with the make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan has created this series of modern-art inspired photos of models with their faces painted to appear as two-dimensional…
Using a little post-production trompe l’oeil trickery and crafty make-up techniques, the photographer turns traditional 3D portraits into a living replica of 2D art.
Now turning his attention away from the monochromatic and toward the concept of colorful close-ups, Alexander Khokhlov has transformed traditional portraits into forms we might recognize in art galleries. Along with Kutsan, he’s replicated a pixelated Mona Lisa in the flesh, a punchy pop art design on a modern pin-up and even a take on Obama’s election poster. Originally inspired by Andy Warhol’s portraits, the photos have given birth to a whole new medium of their own.

The forms are in black and white and in colors, the already impressive face paintings become even more theatrical as the photographer plays with the high contrast between light and shadow, creating these unorthodox photographic portraits.

    1. Dear Emma
      This is not recent, about 10 years,
      These artists have opened the voice to others.
      The make ups have progressed a lot!
      Me too I do not like all, there is one who is especially awful! ah, ah!

      At the time I was on tumblr when I did this post, and he was very successful

      In particular the hideous mask; so see the tastes are different today.!
      I have to do tests from time to time.

      Moreover, it has nothing to do; I follow a certain list of artists and submissions.
      I am eclectic,
      But I rarely post what I prefer …

      Initially this blog should be a dark art blog!
      I like baroque, obscure, creepy, gothic, grotesque, macabre, weird …
      That’s my true nature.

      Here everyone runs off, if I start posting twisted things, skeletons or blood.☠️👿
      Not all, there are who appreciate, but it is not the majority.

      Which frustrates me, of course. I am patient fortunately, I adapt myself.
      That’s it, you know my secret!㊙️

    2. My husband’s is also an artist he like the dark and gothic. That’s interesting that you rarely post according to your personal taste – that’s pretty tough. Thank you for your posts I do enjoy the variety. Yes, I don’t like everything, but now I know that you don’t either. Ha!ha! Emma

Artists deserve respect even if you do not like their work; abstain from any negative prejudices! The commentary is a understanding analysis. Thank you
