French street artist IEMZA tells IdN that he treats the creation of his outdoor paintings like sketches, incorporating a hierarchy of lines both organic and faintly architectural. The artist often utilizes decaying walls as a backdrop, where the underlying structures of abandoned buildings have been laid bare and work in perfect harmony with IEMZA’s imperfect, dripping line work. His subjects are equally terrifying and beautiful: hallowed-eyed faces both haunting and sensual, and other-worldly insects or monsters that completely dominate the canvas they live on. You can see much more of his work on Facebook and Flickr.
