Shocking Black and White Face Illustrations

Moscow-based photographer Alexander Khokhlov uses the human face as his canvas for creating graphic, black and white illustrations. From the WiFi icon to the skip of a pulse line across his model's eyes, Khokhlov's vision is extraordinarily unique. Rather than relying on canvas, paper, or any other synthetic material as his foundation, Khokhlov relies on the beauty and lines of the feminine face to form this project, entitled Weird Beauty.

The well designed face art, combined with simple and elegant female faces, presents viewers with a complex optical illusion of positive and negative space. Our eye is naturally and initially attracted to the strong black and white graphics painted by artist Valeriya Kutsan. But, after that, we are visually invited to explore the multiple layers of the photograph, from the swirls of perfect lines to the flawless skin, long lashes, piercing eyes, and emotionless expressions found beneath the paint.
