Digital Stars by Kaneda

Alessandro Pautasso aka Kaneda has a great feel for color. As a graphic designer and illustrator his specialty lies in vector art and mixed media.  These stunning works are from his latest series – I hope your jaw is as slack as mine when I first saw them!

You can see a number of famous faces here (the series includes portraits of John Wayne, Greta Garbo, Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe and many others). In each the faces are broken down in to abstract geometric shapes with strong bright colors and trying to revive the colors of the past.

You can take a look at many more of Kaneda’s works on his Flickr Photostream.  Alternatively, take a look at his official site, No Surprises or indeed his Facebook page.  Have fun!
