These Conor Langton portraits may seem incomplete, but these are indeed finished products. No one can blame you for thinking the former though as Langton is known for painting people’s faces with parts of their head missing or seemingly cut from the page. What this culminates in is portraits that force viewers to gaze only upon features Langton wants his audiences to look at, such as the details of a subject’s eyes. Cutting off parts of people’s heads is thus an artistic tactic rather than being bizarre for the sake of being bizarre.

Conor Langton is an Irish artist originally from Kilkenny, Ireland. His strange, but wonderful art has been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine and he’s currently working independently on prints to be sold on his online store. Stats for Cut-Off Cranium Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
