When looking at digital artists it can be intimidating because the internet is so full of great digital artists. More than traditional artists they live in that crowded space. What made Parfenov catch my eye is their geometry. I love constructing organic forms out of hard man-made shapes. Here are a few of his works:
This piece extends and squares someone's neck. It exaggerates the figure in a specific way that maintains personhood but also takes the person out of the organic realm.
This piece inverts the interest of the last piece. Rather than make a person less like a person, it personifies a location. The visual interest is still drawn to the treatment of the face.
I picked this third piece because the shapes are more varied than the mostly rectangular shapes of previous pieces. The choice in shape and how they interact to construct the form are balanced so that it is a strong portrait while also being abstracted.
