More than mere portraits, Canadian Wilford Barrington’s works are a true revelation of the personality behind the people he illustrates.
During his creative process, the artist does more than just observing his models. He talks to them, extracting from their faces different expressions and emotions, mixing them into an only drawing.
Thus, Barrington’s kaleidoscopic work is capable of showing in one single image diverse facets of a same person.
Although psychedelic, the results are still very attached to the reality, which is a pretty interesting contradiction, don’t you think?
