I am overrun
The Black Portraits Collection is a series of paintings by Miguel Laino rendered in an expressive, monochromatic style. Each portrait, cropped just below the shoulders, is left expressionless or given distorted facial features through dynamic brushstrokes. These emotionally-charged paintings really stuck with me, so I thought I would share them. Here is an abridged version of Miguel’s artists’ statement:

when your art is so bad
i’ll always love you ‘cause we grew up together and you helped make me who i am. i just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and i’m grateful for that. whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, i’m sending you love. you’re my friend to the end.
