Viewers will pour out excitement for the Aaron Dunn 'Heads' series. Beautifully messy, the appropriately titled series has the Baltimore-based artist Aaron Dunn carve out heads from paint. Starting off as a parody of "macho chest-thumpers," the colorful project grew into a way to explore traditional painting and find its many possibilities.

Dunn stated to the art website Beautiful Decay that the creation of these faces "includes the physical incorporation of paintbrush bristles/handles and other hardware into the work, as well as poured, dissected and dripping paint in all kinds of messy 3D applications."

Strangely captivating, the Aaron Dunn series manages to turn the kaleidoscopic of poured paint hues into vivacious surreal portraits unlike anything else out there.
