Canadian artist Glen Ronald has the incredible ability of finding beauty in visual chaos. Looking beyond crackled paint and frenetic ink splatters, his popular Instagram shows him transforming unruly media into portraits of people and animals. Faces, fur, snouts, and beaks are created by drawing into these drips, and they produce the illusion that they're somehow emerging from the abstract forms.
By working on top of the splatters–using materials like fine-tipped pens, markers, and pencils–Ronald creates dramatic compositions. This process could be compared to finding a diamond in the rough, as he's able to take uncontrollable-looking elements and refine them into exquisite works of art. What was once chaotic now has cohesion and a greater meaning.
