TREND ALERT: FACE OFF

It is often said that art is a reflection of life. It's purely natural, then, that so many artists and designers incorporate human features into their work, given we're constantly taking in physical human forms and figures. From Jean Cocteau's painted faces to Brancusi's sleek profiles, to newer anthropomorphic works from artists like Lex Pavone and Giorgia Piu, we're here for a Face Off.
