Michael Meadors – Maiden America

Amazing!

The artist Michael Meadors creates amazing portraits that they look like collages.

The truth is that they are beautiful graphite and pens portraits finished with bright enamel paint.

Sally Ross – Vintage Portraits

Love!

The Australian artist Sally Ross creates amazing portrait paintings with a vintage touch.

I don’t know if she takes inspiration from them, but a lot of these artworks recall me some classic old photo booth shots.

 

Claerwen James – Solitary Princesses

Love!

The wonderful oil paintings by the British artist Claerwen James were a precious discover. I like the fact that every work talk to each other in terms of style, composition and beauty.

Most of her subjects are young girls and women. To me they they look like blue princesses, lost in a sort of time-space limbo, waiting to be rescued.

Below some of my favourite one.

Núria Farré – Ophelia

Dreamy portraits!

I immediately connected the amazing female portraits by the Spanish artist Núria Farré to the Shakespearian character Ophelia.

It looks like to see a modern version Pre-Raphaelites paintings where femininity, isolation and solitude are common topics. I also recognise a sense of serenity and release on these pantings, but always surrounded with darkness.
