Giant Heads Inside Famous Art Galleries Are Actually Not Photoshopped

Published 3 years ago

Georgian artist Tezi Gabunia is known for industrializing his painting process to produce a piece every two weeks. Yet this time, he’s switching from painting to photography for his project “Falsification“,  in which he shoots people’s portraits in art galleries. Sounds perfectly normal, right? Until you see that his model’s heads take up almost half of the gallery!

And this is not some photo editing gimmick – those galleries are actually miniature versions of world famous art venues like The Louvre, Tate Modern, Saatchi Gallery and a couple more, that the artist designs and laser cuts himself.

Tezi’s aim with the “Falsification” is to trigger a dialogue about hyper-realism issues in art – something we often don’t give a great deal of thought to.
