    Fantastic take on the renaissance rendering without being mundane. Original and haunting! Love it.

    geez… these are amazing

  • classical trash

  • Gene

    These feel very strange and dark. It has a Bacon-esque style to it. And the ‘peeling’ effect is what makes it pop out!

    • ALEX IKHIDE

      OMG!!!! that’s exactly what i thought as well as soon as i saw these!! its sort of a re-imagining of francis bacon’s style and form of work

  • They are all amazing but I really love the fourth one.

  • Eerie and beautiful.
