MARIA KLEIS

My focus is to show the models personality and vibe, like you can see in a classic portraits. I'm trying to express the younger generation in a modern way. There are so many super talented portrait painters, but I'm trying to make a new style where I use my tattooed backgrounds. First, I paint a realistic portrait, and then I use pens to cover the whole person with patterns. It has a wonderful effect, where you can explore thousands of dots in all colors and forms. You can go close and see a "extra panting on the pantings" - it is kind of mesmerizing.
