The soft, fluid motions of watercolor painting collides with the depiction of grotesque and bizarre individuals in Akira Beard's collection of watercolor portraits. This collection of paintings contains a sense of decay that reflects the state of the characters captured within the illustration. As colors and paints ooze down the canvas, one tries to determine whether or not the obscure representation of the individuals is a result of the materials used or the figures themselves.
Despite the distorted features and harsh expressions, Akira Beard's artwork is nonetheless beautiful and captivating. The wide use of various colors and strokes distinguishes each painting as something exlusive from the rest of the artist's work. Each illustration revolves around a core set of complementary hues, creating a dichotomy between aesthetic association and abnormal characteristics.
