Yury Darashkevich

Yury Darashkevich paints finely rendered women against void backgrounds, and for my money he’s at his best when creating his large-scale close-ups; the empty backgrounds become foregrounds as drips of paint bleed over the edges of hairdos and shoulders, while the women stare back at you with looks that suggest you had better take them seriously.  Before you head over to his site though, I should warn you that some of his work is NSFW.
