The one thing you’ll notice instantly about Brazilian artist Meyer’s portraits are his subjects’ piercing gaze. Bold and powerful, they peer right into your very soul, and serve as pools of self reflection. Throughout his 19 years of experience painting faces, Meyer has the ability to inject life and emotion into his characters. All his paintings are untitled, and even the girl in this portrait is unknown. Here, she is wearing a grungy brown smokey eye, and her silver hair is cropped into a dainty pixie.
