Ray Caesar

The mind of London-born digital artist Ray Caesar was warped at an early age, perhaps when he began sleeping with a book of Dali’s paintings under his pillow. Caesar combines traditional portraiture with surrealism, resulting in a bizarre juxtaposition of beautiful and repugnant subjects: most often precocious little girls with half-hidden disfigurements, time-traveling teens with hinted smiles at the corner of their red-painted mouths. Caesar refutes that his pictures are of children, but rather that they are “of the human soul, that alluring image of the hidden part of ourselves”. Take a moment to get lost within his website, where an animated gramophone will play a dreamy and liturgical soundtrack for your exploration of this incredibly alluring artist: http://www.raycaesar.com/
