Found these very cool portrait paintings, reminiscent of Francis Bacon. Nice work!

Blank Space BLOG

I love to see artists who are classically trained doing something MORE. Anyone can paint a perfect still life with enough  time and practice, but to truly see things differently is a great talent. Its great to see his realistic work (which, by the way, I think has amazing volume to it… another rare skill in a 2 dimensional medium), and then see how his abstract faces are eerily lifelike. Its like ghosts of ourselves, somewhere in there…
