CHUCK CLOSE- BRAD PITT
This portrait of Brad Pitt was similar to the portrait that Chuck Close did of Kate Moss.... The style shows the rawness of the human and gives the viewer a microscopic view to every crevice on their face. I enjoy this portrait because it amazes me how daring Close was. He went to the details that cosmetic companies hope to change. He makes art out of every day people, and points out their "flaws" in a way that makes it very beautiful to look at. You don't really see it as a flaw, you see it as a purity of who the person actually is.
