Helene Meldahl Self-Portraits
When 26-year-old Helene Meldahl, aka @mirrorsme, turns to the mirror to take a selfie, all kinds of wonderful and wild results emerge from her imagination. For more than a year, the young Norwegian artist has been filling her Instagram account with photographs that blend self-portraits with clever illustrations drawn on a mirror with chalk or acrylic marker.
Amazing Illustrations by Artist Chiara Bautista
Chiara Butista aka MILK is an enigmatic artist from Tucson, Arizona. Her work is insanely detailed and appears to be riddled with symbolism. Many of her subjects, which sport antlers or tentacles, are captured in chaotic, angst-ridden moments which are balanced perfectly by femininely decorated backgrounds and cartoonish animal friends. You could scour these images for hours and still find new details every time you revisit them. His work is rich with symbolism inspired cephalopods, falling planes, deer, piercing arrows, wounds, teddy bears and drugs which may be as much a symbol for obsessive love.
