Seasonal Beauties Represent the Changing Seasons

Using the changing seasons as inspiration, graphic designer and illustrator Alon Avissar developed this grid of double-exposure portraits entitled Seasonal Beauties. Four silhouettes are the foundation for the digital creations that merge soft feminine features with blossoming flowers, pine cones, and snow-covered branches.

Pale, delicate colors and rich textures convey the sensations of a warm summer day and a cold wintery afternoon. Each woman maintains a thoughtful expression on her face that sits calmly against the delicate natural shapes.

Avissar says, “With it being the dead of winter and having been snowed in for the past couple days now, I starting thinking about what designs I could create based on the theme of ‘seasons.'” He used Alphonse Mucha‘s Art Nouveau calendars as the foundation for his concept and developed these elegant beauties who peacefully illustrate the regularly changing seasons.
