This lithograph, created by the artist John Luke Eastman combines vintage beauty inspirations with a surreal atmosphere. Its square frame and vibrant red backdrop draw our attention towards the center. Within this space, a stylized face, reminiscent of classic matryoshkas and 80s Shiseido beauty vintage advertisements rests on a black background. The face is pale, with heavily made-up eyes, accentuated lashes, and a red blush contrasting against the foundation’s milky white hue. As we delve further into the lithograph, a visual revelation unfolds, akin to the intricate layers of a Russian doll. The boundaries of the central figure's forehead open. From the skull, a distorted iteration of the same countenance takes flight, accompanied by additional oval-shaped figures that progressively decrease in size as they recede into the distance. In the vast expanse of space, these ethereal forms may possess the potential to metamorphose into celestial bodies, or planets, evoking an enigmatic cosmos that beckons contemplation.

It's a graphically perfect work, with a mastery of drawing, colors and occupation of space.

John Luke Eastman is an acclaimed LA-based artist whose artwork has been featured in esteemed international exhibitions, including Celux, Rocket in Tokyo, and Sola Design in Los Angeles. His distinct style has been described as "the 5th dimension" or "beautiful distortion", emphasizing the fluidity of movement, weightlessness, and a vibrant palette. Drawing inspiration from graphic art, fashion photography, and illustration, Eastman's ultimate goal is to celebrate the creation of beauty through the spirituality of line and color.
