These epic portraits could easily pass for highly stylized photographs. But take a closer look and you鈥檒l see they鈥檙e crafted by the meticulous hand of Oriol Angrill Jord脿. 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, 鈥淚鈥檝e always been a bad student, and I had a fervent tendency to distractions,鈥 recounting how he used to waste time staring at light and shade, 鈥渇ollowing the flight of a fly or how the pencil fell down while I was pushing the table up with my feet.鈥 Between these dreamy, mountainous silhouettes, starry eyes and rosy updos, we don鈥檛 think that was time wasted at all.
