Jonathan Viner has a new series of paintings called Harem Girls. It's a bunch of beautiful Russian prostitutes (well, in theory) listening to their headphones. makes you kind of wonder what music you'd listen to if you worked in a Slavic whorehouse to take the edge off.
psssst it should be dubstep!
Anyways, Viner always delivers. The man can do this oil painting stuff in a way that will take your breath away. His other series have been much more conceptual. This is the first he's gotten so IN YOUR FACE. Okay, I only mean that literally. He generally does more complex scenes, and here we just have some close-ups of pretty girls, but they're amazing paintings nonetheless.
(ps-why do all the girls have the same nose piercing?)
