The surreal distorted portraits of Carl Beazley, a 26 year old artist based in the United Kingdom, are compelling for a number of reasons. First of all, they are disturbing in the way they portray human emotions and personalities. Second of all, and arguably more importantly, the distorted portraits were created in a self-taught artist. Beazley writes that "by not going to University and not studying the all different painting techniques from history, I feel it has given me the freedom of learning from trial and error."

Although there doesn't appear to be any error in these distorted portraits, just a lot of imaginative perspectives. From multiple faces to protruding objects and more, the distorted portraits encourage people to think about their own emotions and personas.
