Stunning Self Portraits of a Woman Sharing an Eye with Various Animals

Hungarian artist Flra Borsi has a keen talent for creating surreal visuals. We have featured Borso before, with her collection of playful time-travel edits and enchanting urban landscapes, and the self taught artist just continues to improve and impress. Her latest series of skillful photo manipulations feature some stunning self-portraits with an animalistic twist. The series, titled Animeyed, showcases the young artist with one eye replaced by that of a wild animal.

Borsi is an expert at creating ethereal photo manipulations that tug at the imagination and explore a diverse range of concepts. The edits within Animeyed are exceptionally well done, the profile of each animal perfectly aligned with Borso's own visage to evoke a radically different mood. Borsi makes use of facial expression, makeup, and background colours to completely re-imagine every representation into a unique and stand-alone piece.

The Budapest-based creative has stated that she "plays with hiding and revealing the eyes or face to leave only the feminine form, exploring questions of female representation and the relationship between body and self." Her artwork is visually and conceptually rich, and Borsi has been recognized for her talent–she has exhibited internationally, received multiple awards, and even becoming the face of Adobe Photoshop in 2014.
