Bloody, Beautiful, and Bizarre: Portraits by Karina Marandjian

Karina Marandjian - Obsessed with Black

Karina Marandijan (a.k.a., “daunhaus”) is a Moscow-based artist creating wonderfully weird digitally modified portraits. Her compositions are dark and surreal with a touch of fetish; piercings and wounds mark the body of the ivory-skinned alien-esque subject, creating a bloody contrast of innocence and suffering. The white backdrops resemble a sterile, laboratory-type environment, within which the subject appears to be experimenting with her own identity in an uncomfortable state of transformation.
