Artist Ignacio Torres’ newest project entitled ‘Stellar’ is a beautiful representation of GIF art. These beautiful images started as a project “from the theory that humans are made of cosmic matter as a result of a star's death,” as he says. This active art brings movement and beauty to the cosmos.

Each photograph features bodies in movement surrounded by this cloud of star matter and dust. If it was the artist's intention to draw attention to the star quality and matter in all of us, he has done so successfully. This GIF art is certainly uplifting and unique. There is beauty in all of us, and in a world where beauty fits into such a narrow category, Ignacio Torres brings us back to the notion of inner beauty. The models featured in his ‘Stellar’ collection never show their faces; instead, they show the inner cosmic beauty and quality that makes them who they are.
