Guim Tió Zarraluki is a young Spanish painter who creates stunning abstracted portraits illustrations starting from photographs he likes to cover and transform with paint. The original picture is almost completely buried by a new geological level. Only a nose, mouth or ear is left untouched, as a trace of the subject’s past life. The bold act brings a re-birth. The new faces stare at you with pin pointed, barely drawn eyes, while open lips with painted little teeth enhance a carnivorous smile. The effect of Guim Tiò’s work is spectacular, vibrant, humorous and tragic at the same time.
