Makeup Turns Models into 2-D Pop Art Paintings

2D or not 2D

2D or not 2D is a series made by photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan. The team was increased with Veronica Ershova who had leaded the process of retouching and post-production. The authors were inspired by two-dimensional posters. The key-idea of the project was to turn the models faces into the 2D images. Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations – from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching.

    Hoy me ha dado por rebloguear varios post. Hace no mucho, ví este post del blog de “Emorfes” que me parece que para quién no lo hayáis visto puede gustaros bastante. El trabajo de maquillaje hecho con las modelos es digno de admiración. Espero que os guste.

  8. Love the pixelated lady. Very clever. The last one is also wonderfully confusing :) It took me a while to distinguish the model’s face from the body paint.
