2D art on a 3D canvas will blow your mind

2D or not 2D? That is the quesition... Photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan turn models faces into flat images.

2D project

We couldn't quite believe some of the creations in this series

You'll definitely do a double take when you first set your sights on this incredible collection of photographs. 2D or not 2D is the second series made by photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan and Veronica Ershova who led the process of retouching and post-production.

The pair were inspired by two-dimensional posters, with the key-idea to turn the models faces into the 2D images. Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations - from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings.

We couldn't quite believe some of the creations, with the colours, shapes and strokes carefully and precisely positioned to reveal some truly stunning photography.
