Carlos Franklin is a Colombian artist who seems to currently reside in Paris. His work is about ‘foreignness’; being in the periphery of a culture or society as well as an observer. His work ranges from illustration to film, including graphics and installations.
His Elegance portraits are a series of drawings of males that use hair as the raw material. Franklin reproduces anonymous male photos that he finds on the internet and hairstyle magazines, by embroidering with human hair. A little bizarre, but the results are interesting.
