Artist Alice X. Zhang creates spectacular portraits of pop culture characters in their artistically dazzling worlds. As of late, she has been especially inspired by cinema, recreating scenes with her brilliant aesthetic and color palette. Each image is digitally painted in Photoshop, taking her up to 4 hours per painting.
Joris Kuipers work is consistently inspired by science and anatomy, particularly CT-scans, MRI-scans, and autopsy imagery, and many of the shapes and colors are an abstract interpretation of human blood and tissue. To develop the project, he builds layer upon layer to recreate the human body in a fragmented form and he says, “After this fragmentation, the body is rearranged in a non-rational manner, in order to reveal emotional significance.”
