Silvia Pelissero, widely known as Agnes Cecile, is an artist from Rome, Italy who creates sensual watercolor portraits of women. Looking at her work might remind you of those strange aura-pictures you can get made at a fun-fair: a photograph of yourself with a colored spectrum around you to show your emotional state. In a way this is what Agnes does as well. She paints beautiful, realistic portraits of women and adds an expressive layer of emotion with color. The resulting paintings are often highly colorful, yet always breathe a sense of mystery due to the visibility of the portrayed’s visible emotions.
If you’d like to see more of her work make sure to visit her Facebook and DeviantArt pages. You can also check out her shop at Society6 to buy beautiful prints, phone cases, and apparel. At the bottom of the article you’ll find a time-lapse video of Agnes creating one of her paintings. Last but not least…don’t you think her work would be a great fit for a duo-show with Conrad Roset, who is currently featured on beautiful.bizarre’s March Issue 008?
