The artist of these flat-faced portraits, Oscar Delmar, hails form Barcelona where he is a graphic designer and illustrator. The effect of losing the strong lines that define where a face goes and stops is hauntingly interesting. Even though the eyes, nose and mouth are still three-dimensional, the rest of the face is given freedom to expand to cover the space of the canvas. The face becomes greater than its supposed structure, and adds to an unworldly aspect of the art.

Each portrait is unique and the splash of color that appears in the photos help with the contrast. The captivating faces of Oscar Delmar are too compelling to pass up.
