Artist Winston Torr creates a series of signature paintings for this Vogue Ukraine beauty editorial. The image series is captured by photographer Arcin Sagdic and features his supermodel muse Ola Rudnicka.

Gracing Vogue Ukraine's August 2015 'Art Issue,' the series pairs monochromatic imagery with cloned compositions that feature an abundance of chromatic paint strokes. Winston Torr's stunning paintings appear surreal and textural, showcasing layered brush strokes and exaggerated paint blotches.

Though dramatically layered, these colored paint strokes are carefully manipulated and are surprisingly not muddy. This comparative image series layers painted and photographed images, presenting them side by side cleverly. While this editorial's photographs are understated, its paintings embrace opulence, excess and manage to challenge a viewer's perception.
