Aren’t things almost always much different than how they seem to be? For instance, check out these artworks by Philip Muñoz.
Such stunning photographs right?
This well-captured model from ‘illusion of beauty’ seems to be peering straight into your soul.
But like the headline mentioned, these are not even photographs!
These are in fact <gasps> paintings,
How could that be, you think? My mind is still not ready to accept these gorgeous works of art as paintings. All I can wonder is how can anyone be as talented as this.
What’s the secret? How is this even possible, my mind’s got several questions.
As a self-taught painter with a degree in Biochemistry from the University of Bristol, Philip finds interest in the idea of beauty through transformation and the concept of the contemporary sublime.
The models he’s used for these paintings are all young, fashionable, tattooed and rebellious. Moreover, the models come with a carefree, and provocative attitude on their own.
In fact, Philip dedicates this collection to “vibrant and youthful, care-free characters I see every day outside the doors of my studio.”
Muñoz attributes the colorful city of Bristol where he lives, as the fuel behind his desire to paint and as a provider of an endless stream of inspiration.
