Mike Dargas

Upon first glance of Mike Dargas’ work you would be forgiven for assuming it was a photograph however, you’d be incredibly wrong.

Beginning his early career as a tattoo artist in his early twenties, Dargas had already begun to make a big name for himself, winning countless prizes and awards as he progressed with his artistic talent. Today Dargas focuses on his hyperrealist oil paintings, most notably his series of portraits depicting beautiful young women drenched in honey.

There is something so intense about these particular paintings, the subject itself seems captivatingly odd, whilst the fact that they have been painted by one man is truly mind blowing.
