Artist and architect Lucas Simoes is based out of Sao Paolo, Brazil, and is known for his bizarrely alluring work that consists of strange portraits featuring 10 layers of cut-out photographs.
Through this use of layering, the photographs convey an almost three-dimensional feel despite their two-dimensional nature. Though initially uncomfortable to look at, these photos are still undeniably enticing and hypnotizing.
The "un-portraits" break down the elements of the conventional portrait and present a unique take on identity and art. Parts of the photo appear to be melting together, and Simoes explains that the images are supposed to convey a sense of continuity and unity throughout.
Original in design, the visual elements of Lucas Simoes portraits are striking and seductive.
