David Perez Illustrates “Girls” in surreal monochrome portraits
Placid and flat, and all in black and white, except for a touching accessory. Camile wears a yellow cap with an almost downcast demeanor. Alexander with her double glasses looks a bit more curious. Adriana’s facial expression; a hand on her lip, portray enthusiasm. And, Vivian with her party glasses would place for excitement while Alejandra in super red lipstick depicts suprise.
These Monochromes are the work of freelance illustrator, David Feliperez , a Columbian based graphics designer and illustrator. He is seeking to show the “silence intuition” with this new project ” Girls” . And, the monochrome or greyscale portrait adds more emotional touch to the subject, compared with the original colored photography with bits and pieces of colour splashes adding the final clue to the expressionism intended.
All portraits , 13 protagonists in all, come with a little colored indicators , either on the wrists, eyes , body arts , or noses . Those objects- along with their demeanor– help draw attention to the characteristics of the personalities each “Girls” represent. Generally more subtle and interpretive, and less realistic than fully colored photograph , this illustration is an expression of conflicting emotions . A contras between color and expression, with the indicators as points of departure from the ensuing placidity.
