Portraits of the Double-faced Women By Sebastian Bieniek By Sebastian Bieniek

Artist on tumblr  

Doublefaced is an intriguing series by Berlin-based German artist Sebastian Bieniek that features portraits of a girl with the illusion of two faces. By simply drawing on each side of his model’s head with common makeup products like eyeliner and lipstick, Bieniek transforms the young woman into a eerie set of twins. He cleverly uses one of her own eyes and another drawn eye, applied further towards her temple, to simulate a forward-facing female on the side of her actual face.

The images of the dual-faced subject are both eye-catching and, at times, terrifying. She seems to be an experiment gone awry and set loose in public and private spaces. Just like her hybrid form, one is left feeling mixed emotions by her believable presence. Duality and illusion are strong thematic elements of the series that does a brilliant job of tricking the eye. The model’s hair also plays a large part in the effective illusion, separating the two faces or simply framing the one faux face.

« This curious and thought provoking project alludes to the duality of human nature and challenge our ideas of beauty. In a sense, Bieniek goes Picasso on his models’ portraits, drawing alternate faces on their heads and using parts of their features — primarily the eyes and hair — to create portraits with unique expressions and an illustrative sensibility. »

Face-Devouring Photography By Lucas Simões

I’m not sure what it is about our nature that makes us constantly want to mutilate faces — and maybe that is just the simplest explanation for all of our recent zombie activity — but sometimes there’s just nothing more carnally fulfilling than running paper faces under an acid bath of collage, painting, mixed media, whatever.
Brazilian artist Lucas Simões burns photographic portraits, to give them such personality that their remains sometimes come across as grotesque three-headed beasts (ausência series) and sometimes remind us of sparking memories of the past (quem brinca com fogo series).
It takes skills to draw such diversity from such a simple and carnal concept, and for it to evoke such a suprising range of emotions, including sadness, fear, and compassion.

 Surreal Pop World of Eugenia Loli

You can follow more of Loli’s work on Instagram or Facebook, and she sells prints and other things in her shop.

Collage artist Eugenia Loli uses photography scanned from vintage magazines and science publications to create bizarre visual narratives that borrow from aspects of pop art, dada, and traditional surrealism. Loli’s background is almost as diverse as the imagery she employs, having been born in Greece and living in Germany and the UK before settling in California. She previously worked as a nurse, a computer programmer, and as a technology journalist, but has only recently found a calling in collage work with publication in numerous magazines since 2013.

« I’m Eugenia. I’m a filmmaker, illustrator, and a modern vintage collage artist. Before art took over my life, I was in the technology sector. I’m originally from Greece, but for many years now I live in California. It’s important for me to “say” something with my artwork, so for the vast majority of my work there’s a meaning behind them. I usually do this via presenting a “narrative” scene in my collages, like there’s something bigger going on than what’s merely depicted. Sometimes the scene is witty or sarcastic, some times it’s horrific with a sense of danger or urgency, some times it’s chill. I leave it to the viewer’s imagination to fill-in the blanks of the story plot ».

Creative Sculptures by Yoan Capote

Yoan Capote is a wonderful and very smart sculptor hailing from Pinar del Rio,  The young artist creates paradoxical images with political and psychological connotations. Sculptures with inanimate objects around the human body.
Majority of Capote’s work speaks on a broad myriad of social issues from sexuality, prostitution, environmental issues, and many more.
I definitely encourage everyone to check out the Capote website to read their artist statements and writings for each piece.

‘Dark photo manipulations by Anja Millen

 On DeviantArt
 German artist Anja Millen has been creating art since 1984, shifting from analog work to a more modern mix of different styles you can see in her latest works. Although her techniques differ from when she started, the dark and dramatic feel in her work is still there. Anja’s work shows a resemblance with the dramatic lighting of classic fine arts painters from the Romantic and Baroque era, resulting in works with the same dramatic feel the paintings from the old masters have.

The Veiled Ghosts of Livio Scarpella

The work of Italian contemporary artist Livio Scarpella turns good and evil into delicacy.  This group of sculptures, named “Ghosts Underground”, depicts lost souls anguishing beneath the effect of a thin veil.  Scarpella’s interest in this subject was inspired by a trip to the Sansevero Chapel in Naples, home to Antonio Corradini’s “Veiled Christ”.  Before that time, he mostly exhibited paintings for a decade. By mixing influences of Rococo sculptors like Corradini with modern iconography, Scarpella explores a struggle with religious faith.  He couples his “blessed” and “damned” figures with light and dark colored mineral rocks, like amethyst and quartz, inside the chest.  They are hardened hearts that embody the ghost hidden within. Reminiscent of Michelangelo’s The Prisoners, these gentle busts unveil the ghost within. Scarpella takes this idea to a new level in his recent work. His exhibit “Fuori dal Tempo” (“Out of Time”) now showing at Gallery Gomiero in Italy, looks at the theme of sin without repentance.  Undeniably, Scarpella pursues a morbid imagination dominated by smug virtue and natural beauty.

Delicious Morbid Portraits by Igor Skaletsky

on Behance
Igor Skaletsky does have what it takes to be a collage master. Born in 1978 in Russia, this freelance illustrator has travelled in the hot spots of contemporary art, including Israel and Germany, to find his own visual identity. The result of this initiatory trip is a unique technique, combining digital photomontage with acrylic paint and varnish.
Skaletsky’s pleasure is to collide Early Netherlandish painters and Italian Renaissance masters with trendy supermodels and icons of the tattoo culture, such as Zombie Boy. He denudes the characters of famous paintings to reveal their tattooed bodies, flirting with irreverence and even blasphemy.
His creations, dark and cold, are a fascinating combination of laidback lowbrow art and hieratic highbrow masterpieces : the Russian artist has made the choice of the everything or nothing, emulating both David Lachapelle and Hieronymus Bosch in their ironical way of connecting morbid and trash with sacred and luxury.
Fine Art gods and heroes are making an incursion in the world of Haute Couture and swag, while pop culture “it” girls and boys are bringing their bondage accessories and sensuality to the museums. A real modern religious iconography, displaying saints and sinners, écorchés and fashion animals. The kind of universe where art lovers wish to do a pilgrimage.
