Stunning portraits by Atsuko Laskaris
I am usually most captivated by mosaics by other artists that approximate what I am striving for in my own. There is one hearty exception, and that is Atsuko Laskaris. I have the utmost respect for her portraiture work, even though I haven’t the slightest interest in ever creating a portrait myself. The depth and beautiful light play are really astounding in her works. The one below, Soloist, is my favorite.
See a close up and in progress shot of this on the Mosaic Art Now blog. There are several more astounding pieces as well as a short bio of the artist on that post as well. Go check it out!
