Looking like something out of a scene from Garden State, these Carlo Galfione paintings plaster intricate floral prints onto the faces of individuals with surprisingly effective results. After all, who would dare look away from someone with such creative and beautiful face adornments in real life? Only the bravest of the brave, I'm sure.

Italian artist Carlo Galfione paints all of these paintings using oil paints, which only enhances the respectability of each piece considering it would be much quicker to simply snap a few shots of people's faces and slap on some floral prints onto each person's skin using Photoshop.

Implications - Consumers appreciate analog artwork more so than digital creations because they feel the skill and effort required to create analog pieces far surpasses that of digital pieces. This adds intrinsic value to the work and also makes viewers empathize with the work more so. Corporations considering using graphics for promotional campaigns may consider analog images as opposed to computer-generated drawings. Stats for Floral-Printed Faces Trending: Older & Average
