These Cil Laurens renderings are evocative of the artwork of Brandon Boyd in that they both feature beautiful women with lush floral designs in place of their hair. The difference in the two, however, lies in the fact that Laurens’ preferred canvas of choice is pieces of wood. The resulting images thus have a traditional feel to them despite having very contemporary-looking illustrations.

Cil Laurens’ work is highly meticulous, as demonstrated by the intricate patterns she adorns her female subjects with. In addition to greenery, she also incorporates a lot of wildlife into her illustrations, making her work highly organic in feel. It’s as though viewers are reconnecting with nature when they gaze upon the work of this Amsterdam-based artist. Stats for Surreal Wood Women Portraits Trending: Older & Average
