Artist David Tallitsch's abstract portraits are infused with an abundance of layered shapes and vibrant hues. The pieces are fragmented and chaotic, appearing to collapse and then rearrange themselves together unexpectedly.

These abstract portraits capture subjects with oversized heads and distorted features. Instead of traditional features, this series highlights layered motifs of architecture, landscapes and eye cutouts that are formed to create and unconventional image. These works are abstract and irregular, making them even more striking and never boring.

Providing visual interest from every angle, these abstract portraits explore complex and layered imagery. In addition to sculptural faces, the portraits also features stacked linear elements that explore the varying hues of the color spectrum.
