These Deconstructed Portraits are Inspired by People Living in Digital Worlds

The works of Argentinian painter Juan Manuel Sanabria present an intriguing mix of tradition and modern times. While he uses the traditional painting techniques, the themes within his artwork are quite new.

Sanabria paints unusual portraits that are deconstructed in a way that resemble a mosaic. According to the artist, the distortion of portraits represents the life of people in this new digital world and the distraction they are exposed to.

“Everything has changed in this digital new world, every thought, every problem we have today is thrown into social networks as nothing, as if we were supposed to live online” – Sanabria says. Check out some of his works below.
