Benjamin Shine unveiled a whimsically colorful art exhibit that presents portraits of humans made from sheer fabrics. The colors present a magical aura of smoke, like something one would imagine emerging from a genie's bottle.

Following this train of thought, this artist has actually incorporated a vase into the art display. The vase is sitting in a less obvious part of the exhibit, but from the mouth of the vase each piece of fabric appeases to be crawling its way out.

Benjamin Shine's stunning use of colorful sheer fabric to create undeniably realistic human portraits is something of wonder. In addition to the faces, the exhibit contains fabric that has been transformed into the silhouette of the human body. Each silhouette is striking a different pose. From the viewer's standpoint, it looks as though a human is actually standing behind the sheets of blue, pink and purple fabrics.
