Mysterious spray-painted portraits by Marco Rea

marco-rea-intro

You might not believe it but the artist I want to introduce to you today uses a technique I’ve never seen before. Say what? Yes, a completely new technique! The artists name is Marco Rea and he creates his pieces by spray-painting over existing billboards, advertorials and magazine covers. The resulting portraits of mysterious, alien-like creatures with piercing pitch black eyes are gorgeous and something I haven’t seen before. If you’re curious to see the original pieces you can take a look at Marco’s website, in the ‘Work in progress’ section you’ll find some great before and after shots. Enjoy!

  • These are so breathtaking & haunting, I’ve never seen anything like them either! I love the before & after photos on his website too, it’s so interesting seeing the transformation.
    I just wanted to say thankyou so much for your comment on my blog, I’m so pleased I came across yours through it! I think I’ve spent a good half hour or so going back into your archives, so many amazing artists & photographers & beautiful write ups about them too.
    Also very jealous you got to go to Sedlac Ossuary! It’s on my list of places I need to visit, it looks incredible! :)

    • Ah, thank you so much! Funny that you mention you spend some time browsing my archives, that’s exactly what I did when I found your website! :)

      The Sedlec Ossuary is great indeed, it’s really impressive to stand in the middle of something like that. The church isn’t really a big site, you could easily check it out during a city trip to Prague for instance.
