Incredible Hand-Painted Portraits by Russell Powell

Published Dec 15, 2015

California-based artist and teacher Russell Powell creates realistic portraits on the palm of his hands.

“Powell’s works don’t just stay on his hands. Once he has completed a portrait, he touches his palm to paper. This process is called ‘hand-stamping,’ and it’s how the artist records his pieces in a permanent way. He’s able to paint quickly enough that the medium doesn’t dry, meaning that his works are clearly imprinted. In addition, the stamping showcases Powell’s unique fingerprints and will always remind us from where his beautiful images originated.”
