The author of these hypnotizing glitchy portraits is Harding Meyer, an artist from Berlin. His portraits are colorful but the most distinctive thing about them are the brushstrokes he uses to create a surreal, blurry effect.
Another thing Meyer does to play with our eyes is blending the background with the skin tone, creating the effect of mirror-like skin that reflects its surroundings.
Meyer often chooses faces from mass media of people he doesn’t know, but he manages to portrait them as if he’s familiar with them. See the paintings below.
