The Alexis Marcou Snow Queen sketches are ghostly pale and refreshingly cool. Marcou’s sketch showcases a striking female face locked in an eerie stare that surpasses the bounds of the painting and engrosses the viewer. The female muse is dusted with porcelain powder, ice-laced eyelashes and is surrounded by what appears to be shards of gleaning glass.
His paintings are multidimensional and astonishingly realistic, resembling the clarity and likeness of a photograph. This snow queen-inspired illustration was created using Chanel make-up brushes, white chalk and graphite pencil. The artist behind the Snow Queen still-life graduated from Plymouth University and has been commissioned by a variety of corporations. Some of the corporations include Cisco, Hewlett Packard and Nike; Alexis Marcou is also available for commissioned works.
