Vibrantly Painting the Human Canvas


It feels like these faces are absolutely glowing with colorful light and energy. Using what seems to be all kinds of smears and splatters of paint, photographer Igor Klepnev created this series of Pop Art Portraits that are reminiscent of an Andy Warhol creation.

The Russian artist has portfolios filled with stunning and dramatic female fashion portraits. This series, in particular, is a vibrant, passionate, and sensual addition to his other work that tends to be equally dramatic but a bit less colorful. The abstract expression of feminine beauty is captivating and model Daria Sevastyanova absolutely seduces the camera in every photograph!
