Artist Turns Crushed Watercolor Pigments Into Amazing Portraits



Barcelona-based artist Borja Martinez crushes watercolour pigments and turns them into amazing portraits.

He begins with a vector image printed on a piece of paper and cuts out pieces of the face to create a template.

Next, he crumbles the rainbow-colored pigments onto paper with his hands—allowing only some to pass through while the rest land on the template and are tossed aside.

Once finished, he lifts the template up—revealing a clean and final portrait underneath that plays on positive and negative spaces.
