These colorfully distorted paintings by artist Blair Whiteford are a wonderful depiction of artwork that blends portrait-like imagery with abstract forms and colors.
These modern art pieces are great examples of the kind of techniques artists are using, in order to create designs that are both visually mesmerizing and thought-provoking. Whiteford’s paintings beautifully showcase portraits of ordinary people, however what sets his artwork apart from other paintings is that the images are often distorted and fragmented. The designs take on an abstract type of imagery, which encourages viewers to carefully examine the images that they are seeing.
These eclectic and wonderfully imaginative paintings by Blair Whiteford are not only stunningly mesmerizing, but they also serve to blur the line between what’s ordinary and abstract.
