Amazing Face-Paintings Transform Models Into The 2D Works Of Famous Artists
Incredibly talented Russian make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan’s latest project—titled “2D Or Not 2D”—involves transforming the three-dimensional faces of models into the two-dimensional paintings of famous 20th century artists.
In collaboration with photographer Alexander Khoklov and expert photo editor Veronica Ershova, she recreated well-known artworks from artistic legends such as Mondrian and Lichtenstein on the faces of her subjects.
Kutsan’s skillfully handled make-up brushes produced images that straddle the second and third dimensions—in some cases, the models look more like flat, illustrated versions of themselves instead of living flesh-and-blood.
