Levi Van Veluw’s Landscape Self-Portrait Series


Dutch artist Levi Veluw’s self-portrait series “Landscapes” take a twist on the seminal paintings of idyllic countryside, using his face as the canvas, creating a 3d depth to his subject matter. Also be sure to check out his earlier work, including “Material Transfers” and “Ballpoints”.

Levi van Veluw´s photo series are self-portraits, drawn and photographed by himself: a one-man-process. His works constitute elemental transfers; modifying the face as object; combining it with other stylistic elements to create a third visual object of great visual impact. The work you see therefore is not a portrait, but an information-rich image of colour, form, texture, and content. The image contains the history of a short creative process, with the artist shifting between the entities of subject and object.
