American artist Charlie Terrell has more than one string to his bow. This tattooed musician in his fifties is certainly more renowned as a video artist (at DaddyVan), bringing his savoir-faire to live performances of artists such as Maroon 5 or creating music videos for famous hard-rock bands (Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Megadeth and Disturbed). But his talent also extends to graphic creation. Indeed, for years, Charlie has been digitally altering photographs, creating unique portraits, mainly of alternative female models.
His image treatment is reminiscent of the work of painter Gustav Klimt and mosaic art. On organic colored backgrounds, women look like fantasy wood inhabitants, either nymphs, pagan priestesses or heroines of romantic poetry.
Charlie Terrell also has the knack of turning everyday life situations (reading, taking selfies) into witty and beautiful digital paintings, tattooing his models bodies with jewels-like geometrical patterns.
