Dutch artist Levi van Veluw’s "Landscape" and "Material Transfers" self portraits were featured on Trend Hunter a few months ago, where we explained that the concept of elemental transfers means that the face is modified to become an object. His work features clever display of graphical dimension and depth in its artistic context.

Levi says that his photo series "BallPoints" is not a just a portrait, but an information-rich image of colour, form, texture, and content. By giving familiar elements such as a ballpoint-line, ink drops, etc, a new context , it results in a confusing conflict between the normal objects and new values it has been given it due to its placement in this new photographic context.
