This series started by replacing Van Gogh's face with Clint Eastwood's.
I wasn't completely satisfied with the result, so I tried to work with masks and I realized that the stripes effect was super cool, as there was a perfect combination of pictured and painted image. Moreover, the new face I assembled was totally unique.
Somehow it struck me like a Picasso's portrait.
For each artwork, most of the time is spent searching for the right picture of actress/actor to combine with the painting I choose.
It takes a lot of patience.
Once I have found it, it's all about creating three or four masks and work a little on them.
