Mercedes Helnwein – Dark Surreal Art

I am super intrigued by the aesthetic of the Austrian artist Mercedes Helnwein. Her talents move around different disciplines as writing, paintings, photography and film making. In this post I will focus on her fab portraits, where each piece seems to suggest us a story.

I enjoy the fact that each character on her paintings seems to hide a mysterious and somewhat dark secret and of course, the vintage look makes the whole creative project even better.

You can also find her on Instagram.

Alice De Miramon – Layered Art´┐╝

You cannot deny it – the French artist Alice De Miramon can transform everything she touches into a beautiful, colourful and powerful art piece.

I love how she uses very old vintage papers as a medium to paint over her delicate feminine subjects. She also experiments a lot, paintings on vintage objects or textiles as well. No matter where she paints, you can recognise her “fauvism” inspired touch.

Caroline Liu Art
