Incredible Portrait 360 by Gianluca Traina

Italian artist Gianluca Traina re-imagines the notion of portraiture by combining 2D and 3D elements in her series entitled ‘portrait 360’.

The project was an outcome of exploring the impact of fusing flat, static surfaces such as paper with the familiar contours of the human body.

This effect creates and articulates traina’s idea of being without identity, an unrecognizable face distorted through experimentation. the pieces are characterized by a deliberate mosaic-like skin, obscurely arranged to depict the photograph of a face, contorting and curling around the form of a skull, confusing gender and identification.

“Portraits are 360° degrees views of humans social. Humans that share their own face, face that in Portrait360° is conceived with an unusual rotation of the face

Attracted by the beauty of Byzantine mosaics and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representations of the image curious and innovative”.
