Artist Ashkan Honarvar has combined beautiful textures from unexpected sources to create re-imagined images of ideal beauty. Conventional beauty is illustrated by the artist’s use of glossy supermodels as the focus of his images. These women act as the foundation on to which the rest of the collage is created.

Klimt to focused his attentions on the women he rendered then built up a fantastically ethereal world of patterned metallics and jewel toned textures around the central figure.

He attempts to reacquaint the materialistic world with the true beauty of the natural world. He makes these feminine waifs over and redesigns their beauty.
