These crushed watercolour portraits by Borja Martinez feature iconic subjects that include Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, the Dalai Lama, Mahatma Gandhi and current U.S. president Barack Obama.

Borja Martinez' work stands apart for its non-traditional conception. Channeling artists of past genrations, he experiments with his medium transforming it from its two dimensional form.

The Spanish artist and member of Lo Siento Studio creates his life-like art pieces by crushing watercolor paint fragments and rearranging the debris to form realistic depictions of his subjects.

These crushed pigments exude a multitude of exuberant color tones and provide the artist's pieces with a strong sense of depth and dimension. The sandy art pieces also exude a strong sense of texture and are intricately made revealing realistic visions of some of history's most influential individuals.
