Artist Brian Donnelly created a series of portraits that portray fading faces. The creative series is titled 'Liquified Rainbow Portraits' because each image shows a person's face dissolving into a waterfall of rainbow colors.

The series is highly whimsical with the use of appealingly bright colors. The paintings are designed to look as though each face is simply vanishing -- like something from a cartoon movie.

Brian Donnelly was inspired to create these fading faces to reflect his "interest in human identity and vulnerability." The images are crafted to look just like real people, with a twist of literal identity confusion. The thought-provoking series is relative to many human emotions and will resonate with a variety of individuals.
