Unique portraits by Carl Beazley

Here are a few interesting paintings by the 26 year-old self-taught UK artist Carl Beazley. He paints surreal portraits of faces that have been manipulated, twisted, and multiplied to create these visually intriguing, yet disturbing images. In an interview with altReading, he says, “by not going to University and not studying the all different painting techniques from history, I feel it has given me the freedom of learning from trial and error. I am always trying to look for something new and original that’s never been done before, and although I love the paintings of the old masters, it is important to me to look to the future so that in a hundred years from now we have our own history, not just a regurgitated version of the generation that came before us ……if we don’t try to take art to the next level by looking forward, we will just end up going in circles.”
