Jean-Michel Basquiat

UK-based artist Jack Addis is what I’d call a digital portraitist. From what I can tell he takes portraits and digitally distorts them with layers of all kinds of colors and geometric shapes. The pieces are full of chaos and energetic patterns that are somewhat hypnotic – like trippy futuristic paintings. Most of the portraits still manage to resemble the human faces that are featured – some more so than others. It’s like a fun test to try to figure out who each subject is.

They have a bit of an 80s feel with the vibrant color palettes making each one like a party on your screen. He does other work besides portraits but I think these are the most striking.
