FERNANDO VICIENTE IS A MADRID ARTIST who is far more versatile than the series of paintings shown here. Though this series of paintings caught my eye, I am just as impressed with his paintings of celebrities, maps and magazine illustration.

These paintings, with their turquoise ground, appears to take fashion illustration to a new, macabre place. Surreal and anatomically grotesque, these paintings make a statement about beauty.

Do yourself a favor and look here, and you’ll see what I mean about this talented artists’ versatility.

Where do you find these amazing things? These are wonderful... remind me of those medieval tableaux that show the futility of beauty.
