From Moscow-based photographer Alexander Khokhlov’s 2D or not 2D and Angry Beards projects in which – with the help of makeup artist Valeriya Kutsan and retouching expert Veronica Ershova – heexplores the transformative power of paint and makeup.

Inspired by two-dimensional posters, comics, pop art, paintings, pixelated images, and cartoon characters Khokhlov explains:

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. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching.

Here are a few shots [more here] from the Lisa Hannigan gig last night [at the Iveagh Gardens, Dublin]. They may be of interest because she got pelted with paint at the end as in the video for her song Knots.

Here’s a video I took from up the front of the paint bit of the performance. Was such a special night.
