The Jean-Pierre Seguin 'Assemblages' portraits are incredibly surreal. The artist used a multitude of different materials such as buttons and toy soldiers to create these visually appealing portraits. Pointillist and collage techniques were used to create these abstract pieces.

Seguin wanted to add an air of mystery to the series by sparking curiosity and encouraging people to closely examine his works, as there is more to them that meets the eye. From afar, the portraits appear as if they are hand painted or digitally printed. As one approaches the artwork, however, the faces slowly fade away. The amount of precision and detail present in each image is truly amazing.

Artists who can think outside the box and keep viewers interested are sure to garner a huge fan following.
