45 Selfies by Bryan Lewis Saunders

Featured Artist: Bryan Lewis Saunders

Artist Bryan Lewis Saunders  took a different drug every day and created a portrait of himself under it’s influence. ( Above, is “Cocaine”, the darkest and our favorite… )  An eclectic and versatile series of 45 self-portraits came out of this project. We’ve posted a few selections here, all great in their own very expressive way.

The series seems like it was planned to use a different style each time and one has to wonder whether it was the drug which really commanded most the outcome… Some of the influence can be imagined and projected by an artist with experience (but first, are you experienced?)… either way, this is a fun series.  A great exercise for any artist and an interesting premise, which resulted in wonderful variations.
