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.

Sally Ross – Vintage Portraits


The Australian artist Sally Ross creates amazing portrait paintings with a vintage touch.

I don’t know if she takes inspiration from them, but a lot of these artworks recall me some classic old photo booth shots.

From today I am represented by Artfecth, an Irish online gallery that features international and local contemporary artists. I was selected as one of the Irish based artists to be represented by this gallery, and I am really really proud of it. Thanks a lot for this opportunity!
