Distortion and illusion represent the core of Mimi Choi’s face transformations. The artist explains on her website: “Many of the looks originate from her experiences lived during sleep paralysis, a condition that she suffers from and that often leaves her paralyzed when she wakes up, although conscious. In those moments Mimi envisions the misshapen and distorted looks that she then transfers to her body.”

I guess, there is not much to say about the technicality and appearance of Philipp Frohnapfel’s work... besides... IT WORKS! With a minimal approach the artist achieves the maximum in outcome, don’t you think?
“Doesn't everyone want to feel in the night
the beloved body, compass, polestar,
to hear the quiet breathing that says
I am alive, that means also
you are alive, because you hear me,
you are here with me. And when one turns,
the other turns—” - Louise Glück, A Myth of Devotion
@reubennegron’s “Persephone: A Myth of Devotion nº2” is one piece of a series that is inspired by Louise Glück’s ‘A Myth of Devotion’ (1943). The poem tells the story of Hades, God of the Underworld, falling for Persephone. He proves his love by summoning darkness and creating a new world for her, ultimately harming the person he loves. Glück addresses with the poem the bitter and destructive side of love and the social construct of devotion.
@mar_______vin aka Marcos and Kelvin are the combination of two very different photography practices: Coming from Fine Arts, Marcos understands photography as the expression of “the lyrical perception of their surroundings” while Kelvin is drawn to “political and identity issues” through a journalistic approach.
This collaboration might be the secret recipe for such convincing concepts that represent beauty, aesthetics AND sociopolitical perspectives - such as this portrait of Tamara Emy from 2018.
“Living in our society can be tough and most of the time we have to make the best of it. A wild imagination can take you so far, but at the end of the day we need to realize and observe the world around us. And the world around us is where I find my inspiration to paint. Colorful paintings that contain hints of whimsy and realism that tell a story of inner thoughts and personal issues that sometimes go unheard.”
‘Don’t Rock the Boat’ is one of many pieces created by @kaylamay_art, which we absolutely adore. Her combination of different styles, references to popular culture and sociopolitical commentary is something that sticks with us and makes Kayla’s work memorable.

Designer and artist Heidilee crafts surreal wearable art: “Endless Echo Hat”, a digitally cast, repeating version of her face, is most probably the one you have encountered within media coverage. Since making its debut a few years back, the designer has explored different scopes of the work by adding, for example, @swarovski stones and experimenting with the materiality of the piece.
