We love the work of photographer and graphic designer Tomba Lobos who has created an interesting set of portraits, disfiguring his models with a clever mix of flesh coloured play dough and digital retouching. A slightly unsettling yet original and unique series that explores the boundaries of classic photography and basic sculpting and digital versus analogue image manipulation.

We love these awesome animal portraits by German photographer Elke Vogelsang who captures the different and individual personalities of dogs with some very expressive photographs. Dogs rule! 🙂
Bobbugs: A prop master for U.S. TV shows, Michael Gump, aka Bobbugs, has created Master of Disguise, an awesome project where he covers himself with assorted colourful objects, such as LEGO, plastic ducks, cotton buds, cookies, paint, lollipops, pens, pizzas, temporary tattoos and so on, filling his instagram with unique and slightly offbeat self-portraits. LOVE it! 🙂
Romain Laurent: We love this selection of new animated GIFs from talented French artist and photographer Romain Laurent, who continues to create awesome portraits using the technique of cinemagraph – photographs with a small animated loop. Fantastic work!
Ivan Alifan: We love these large format oil paintings created by Russian artist Ivan Alifan, who uses visual ambiguity to generate curiosity, intrigue and slight disgust in his series It’s Not Milk. Through these dripping and oozing portraits, Ivan Alifan explores ideas of sexuality and eroticism with an unsettling modern gaze. Fantastic stuff!
Alex Garant: Using traditional oil painting techniques, Canadian visual artist Alex Garant creates beautiful portraits, splitting the eyes of her models to produce a strange sensation of movement and a surreal illusion which makes you feel a slight loss of focus and concentration. To see more of Alex Garant’s 2015 work ‘Blur’ and the ‘Double Eyes’ series, we recommend a visit to the website. Fantastic stuff! 🙂
Can Pekdemir: We are so intrigued by this unique series of strange and surreal portraits from designer Can Pekdemir, who manipulates and distorts the bones of his models to create slighty scary and uncomfortable organic imagery. Can Pekdemir notes ‘My studies are focused on reconstructing and deforming the bodies by either altering the physical conditions in which the entity exists, and/or treating them as test subjects for virtual experiments while reshaping the systems we now have and thus documenting the evolvement in time.’ Such beautiful and interesting pieces!
