The Brazilian artist has managed to present portraits of individuals with layered designs of various geometric and arbitrary figures being put on top of them so that their faces become screwed into puzzling depictions. The entire series has an eerie aspect to it making viewers staring, wanting to catch whatever facial features they can. By providing these layers, a kaleidoscope effect is made apparent, so even though the faces are jumbled the mixes of colors still present a nice portrait to look at. The Simoe Lucas Multilayered Portraits collection will undoubtedly having onlookers scanning the individual pieces multiple times in curiosity.
