Facescapes of Levi van Veluw - A True Artist

Technically called “Material Transfers,” Levi van Veluw takes different materials and transplants them onto people’s faces to create what is, at the very least, an intriguing visual effect. There is a gallery on his site of the different materials he’s used, and while they are very interesting you don’t get the full effect of one of his pieces say if it integrates some sort of kinetic factor, like, oh, a train running around his head like some kind of halo. Check out this video.

I find it all very interesting. It’s a bit playful, I enjoy the facescapes. Be sure to check out his site and the full gallery here. [Via Mumbojumbodaily.com]
