Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as the old saying goes. But for Barcelona-born artist, Raúl ‘RAL’ Huerta, however, it’s all about the face—RAL believes that beauty in a portrait is the purest and most noble form.

He uses acrylic paints and recycled materials, and transforms the original images using undefined strokes of vibrant colour and embellishes them with layered materials to reveal various forms of beauty. These ethereal, distorted images go beyond the two-dimensional nature of standard paintings and unveil the many faces of beauty.
