The digital portraits by @elena.sai explore the surreal dimension of portraiture with a very realistic look: You better check twice to figure out if this is a photograph or drawing. Elena’s pieces are dark and highly challenging, with the potential to make viewers shake in their boots.
Ted Chin aka @tedslittledream with another digital piece that takes us on a journey to a different universe. The artist states in his bio that “I can’t write well, so I create images instead”. And what a beautiful visual storyteller you are, Ted!

Mayuka Yamamoto is known for her oil paintings portraying children in animal suits or possessing animal features, to reveal their inner world.
Like a protective armor in response to their emotions and psychological state, they seem to instinctively hide behind a second skin in the form of animal costumes or some other defensive physical animalistic features. In some of the pieces, Yamamoto paints settings inspired by nature, further enhancing the contemplative space into which the subject seems to find solace in the dreamlike natural habitat.
Her solo show ends at @coreyhelfordgallery on 30th October - only ten days left to see her wonderful works in person! 😮
Featured: Little Goat Boy (oil on canvas, 17.9" x 17.9")
