Artist Craig Hawkins' enigmatic portraits in his 'Superventions' series capture human thoughts and emotions in a very distinct way.

Rather than paint or draw emotions onto the faces of his subjects, the artist instead covers their faces with colorful swirls that are as beautiful as they are chaotic. The swirls are used to represent thoughts, emotions and each portrait boasts different color schemes. The color themes of these enigmatic portraits make it seem as though the artist has found a unique way to capture the concept of auras -- colorful fields of light that surround individuals while symbolizing different spiritual traits.

These portraits are a mysterious and dynamic, captivating viewers with their chaotic and eye-catching visual aesthetic.
