This is ‘2D or not 2D’, a series of faces painted by Valeriya Kutsan to look 2-D and photographed by Alexander Khokhlov. I am most impressed by Valeriya’s face painting skills.
The project explains:
Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations – from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching.
