Stunning Ink Portraits Fragmented in Water


These portraits by self-taught Italian artist Alberto Seveso are so original! He presents us with representations of human faces that are scattered across the canvas in broken swirls of color. Seveso is well-known for his many amazing ink-in-water photographs and these are no exception. The base of each image is formed from the process of ink slowly mixing and interacting underwater. In the fragmented ink blobs, Seveso identifies features that become the foundation for his portraits. He then uses his master skills with computer software to merge two photographs together into one unique portrait.

Using only females, beautiful eyes peer out from broken sections as the rest of the figure dissolves into wisps of ink. The smooth skin and silky lips of his subjects are prominent and viewers are able to easily piece together the missing parts. Seveso’s well composed forms, colors, and lines blend together into a these expressive abstract creations, a series entitledBeibeees.
