2D or Not 2D Face Painting Project by Alexander Khokhlov

Photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan, whose collaboration was previously featured on Urban Peek here and here, came up with the new project called 2D or not 2D. Inspired by two-dimensional posters this time the team was increased with Veronica Ershova who had leaded the process of retouching and post-production. The main idea of the project was to transform models faces into 2D images. Using different techniques of face painting Kutsan presented wide diversity of styles – from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. Enjoy perfect result of great combination of photography, increadible make-up and carefull retouching.

Weird Beauty by Alexander Khokhlov

A few weeks ago we featured the teaser image of project Weird Beauty by photographer Alexander Khokhlov. Recently more imagery from the project started surfacing on the photographer’s  500px profile. Model Alexandra Romanova stands once again to face-paint-artist Valeriya Kutsan for some abstract and geometric bi-color illustrations.

Silhouette by Alexander Khokhlov

Artist and photographer Alexander Khokhlov took this brilliant photo entitled “Silhouette”, as a part of project “Weird Beauty”. Model Alexandra Romanova pauses to face-paint artist Valeriya Kutsan, where the face portrait is painted half black and half white, and the black half resembles a side view outline of the face it lies within, creating an illusion of choice depending on what color you’re looking at. You can see more of Khokhlov’s work on his 500px profile.
