Igor Kovalov, a Finalist of the "Show Your World" International Art Competition.
"Nudes" is a series of figurative paintings focusing on accidental gestures of the human body. It's an attempt to show human body without its history and personality by shifting the focus to anatomy and lighting. The artist's intention was to make the figures look expressionless and anonymous and let the subtle details tell their own story instead.
