BEAUTY: Painting--Alessandro Pagani

I am drawn to the work of painters who use the obscured-face technique of portraiture, like Nicola Samori, Carole Bremaud, and Alejandro Diaz.

Here we see the marvelous work of Italian artist Alessandro Pagani. I love how parts of his frames are in clear detail while the faces are obscured. He also uses film stills as models, including vintage Vincent Price films!
