Dan Voinea paintings capture a transition between realism and the absurd. The artist Dan Voinea colorfully animates the contemporary world as if it were a surreal dream. Each painting presents a narrative of an improbable animated moment.

Though the presentation of the human figure is distorted, the series frames the body through a mixture of lighting and a minimal background. Moments of human interaction are frozen while relocating the characters' bodies. From a loving embrace to an intense physical fight, missing limbs or unrealistic environments redefine these moments.

The distortion creates a puzzle for the viewer, who must solve the equation Voinea has internalized in the layers of his portraits. In his artistic statement, Voinea states, "the puzzle is ready," showing that this was the artist's intention. Stats for Disappearing Body Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
