Artists have the gift of making direct accounts and portrayals of the world around us, but what happens when you ask them to portray themselves in their work?

The Circleculture Gallery in Berlin just opened the new Self-Portraits by Contemporary Urban Artists exhibition.

The exhibit brought contemporary artists and their self-portraits together to show the world a different view of those behind the canvas.

The different portraits are wacky, eerie, soft, hard and a whole other range of thoughts and feelings. It’s quite the interesting concept, to say the least. Stats for Modern Mirror Canvases Trending: Older & Chilly
