Put On Your Imagination Helmet

Wednesday 04.13.2011 , Posted by

Australian artist Benjamin F. Guy has a recent set of oil paintings called HELM which capture just what it is to be a kid. Each painting features a child wearing an over-sized helmet from a popular anime, sci-fi or comics character. Check out Benjamin’s blog where he shows you the process of sketching his paintings.

“The HELM Portraits blend fantasy and reality while re-interpreting imagery from my youth. The paintings become doorways into childhood imagination where myths are revealed through the malleable nature of paint. The subject of the portrait is open to infinite possibilities, the face is obscured and they have become something else.” – Benjamin F. Guy
