Animeyed – Self Portraits by Flora Borsi
From Hungary, Flora Borsi is a young and very talented visual artist and photographer.
Her exquisite photography and manipulation thematically focuses on identity, relationships, emotions and dreams to create breathtaking surreal visuals.
Flora’s technique and subtle conceptual ideas create beautiful evocations of universal emotions, from lust and desire to despair and loss.
Flora at once captures the complex strength and fragility of the human psyche.
She expertly visualizes dark fantasies and atmospheric dreams, utilizing the uncanny and clever metaphor, while unlocking what it means to think, feel, dream and express in the urban world.
Her work often features the female body and she plays with hiding and revealing the eyes or face to leave only the feminine form, exploring questions of female representation and the relationship between body and self – just as how she is expressing her animal instincts in this self portrait series.
Flora’s ethereal aesthetic has won multiple art prizes and garnered critical acclaim from press including The Guardian’s Observer and BBC Culture.
Her artwork was the face of Adobe Photoshop in 2014.
