In this ongoing collaboration between make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan and Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov, the faces of models are seemingly transformed from three dimensional paintings and designs using face paint. The first series of black and white photos titled Weird Beauty was released last year, and the duo brought on digital artist Veronica Ershova who helped retouch a new collection of images inspired by poster art titled 2D or not 2D. These new color images seem to have a bit more digital assistance but are still amazing to look at. See much more here.
