Disturbing And Erotic Portraits That Might Make You Uneasy

26-Year-old Russian artist Ivan Alifan is the creator of "It's Not Milk" a series of seemingly dripping portraits that mix eroticism, sexuality with feelings of disgust and unease.

"This series is an exploration of the modern gaze; of ambiguous figurative paintings that are revealed and transformed within the act of the individual's' views."

"Whether an individual sexualizes the figure, or becomes embarrassed and nervous by the mere suggestion, this is all a process which occurs independently from the painting." he admits.

Each portrait takes several weeks from concept to completion , each a unique blend of oils and inks that transform the blank canvas into a 3D, rugged and seemingly wet portrait that will undoubtedly turn heads and command attention.

Oil on panel. I know what your thinking and no, you can't eat oil paints.
