Russell Higgs has been adorning his face and head with various objects and posting photographic portraits online since July 2006. Dutch artist Levi van Veluw also likes to modify his face by putting things on it and photographing the results.

I was expecting horrific body mods and ludicrous tattoos. This is much better. Thanks!

In a slightly different vein, that reminds me of this guy (here's a fave).

What van Veluw does reminds me very strongly of paintings of the Italian renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
Also: Veluwe represent!

Those are good, but he's no hobo clown.

Christ that photo cracks me up. The poetry really seals the deal.

So these guys were drunk, right? And this is what their friends did to them?

Either way, needs more teabagging photographs. kthxbye.

Levi van Veluw is a favorite of mine. I don't know if it's something about the way he poses, or the portraits as individual pieces, or the project's concept on the whole; they're fascinating to me. The ballpoints in particular are outrageous. I may be mistaken, but I think there are a few notable exclusions from his recent site renovation. I asked him about it back when he was testing the new site and apparently they're just old and not to his liking. My response was, "but *I* like 'em!" Thanks for the link, mjj, top notch! and I'm off to see the other StuffOnMyArtist guy.
