This shoot composes camouflaged creations that emulate painterly lines, shapes, smudges and grids, utilizing color and glitter to radiate an abstract and otherworldly aura. This particular aesthetic approach references a new era of free-flow medium mixing, a technique much akin to the strokes of an Impressionist painting. Makeup artist Linda Anderson masterfully creates whimsical, painteresque looks to complement each model’s face.
Jori plays with texture through line and composition, detailing the hair as well as the natural canvas of skin, abstracting the movement of his subjects with his up-close and crop-heavy portrait style. All in all, this series adds a new layer of depth and complexity to the male aesthetic identity in a manner that is cosmic and ethereal.
