While there is merit in seeing artworks in the flesh, often the exhibitions we want to see may not be accessible – we live in different cities, even different countries, and before we know it the event is over. Thankfully, the digital age has made art exhibitions much more accessible. But the rise of digital technologies has not only made the sharing of art and information more accessible – it’s integrated into the evolution of artists’ practices as well. “FACES & FIGURES,” curated by Zach Tutor of Supersonic Art, delves into the realm of contemporary portraiture and figurative artwork, showcasing the profound impact of technology and the internet on the representation of the human form. The expansive group exhibition features over 45 of the world’s most ground-breaking artists creating portrait and figurative art today.
Dates: May 5 – June 30, 2023 at the Supersonic Art Shop

Press Release //
“SUPERSONIC FACES & FIGURES” features artists who have successfully expanded the traditional boundaries of portraiture and figurative art by embracing a wide array of methods from classical techniques to innovative digital tools, from hyperrealist depictions of the human form to artists engaging in image manipulation and generating hybrid works that meld classical aesthetics with modern sensibilities. As visitors explore the diverse range of artistic expressions on display, they will witness the artistic metamorphosis that has breathed new life into these genres and gain insight into the myriad ways contemporary artists portray their subjects and encapsulate the essence of human identity.
“SUPERSONIC FACES & FIGURES” is now live on Supersonic Art’s Shop page and will be on show until June 30th – though don’t worry, artworks will still be available to enjoy after this as well! We are excited to share a selection of the works exhibiting in “SUPERSONIC FACES & FIGURES” below. Take a peek – it’s hard not to be enthralled by the myriad of contrasting styles all connected under Zach’s latest theme. Which piece is your favourite? Feel free to comment below!
