These epic portraits could easily pass for highly stylized photographs. But take a closer look and you’ll see they’re crafted by the meticulous hand of Oriol Angrill Jordà. Spanish-born but currently residing in London, his current art series features a hand-painted, double-exposure effect, like something done in Photoshop or deep inside a dark room. The result is nothing short of spectacular.
On his website, Oriol writes, “I’ve always been a bad student, and I had a fervent tendency to distractions,” recounting how he used to waste time staring at light and shade, “following the flight of a fly or how the pencil fell down while I was pushing the table up with my feet.” Between these dreamy, mountainous silhouettes, starry eyes and rosy updos, we don’t think that was time wasted at all.
