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.
