Paint Splatter Superheroes by Arian Noveir

Paint Splatter Superheroes by Arian Noveir

Everybody has a favourite superhero. Whether you love the vulnerability of Batman, Superman’s struggle with what it means to be human, or Spider-Man’s fight for Mary Jane, it’s easy to connect with these super-powered humans (well, human in most cases!) and recognize that despite their superhuman abilities, they’re as damaged and vulnerable as the rest of us.

And that’s what makes these paint splatter portraits (which are actually produced digitally) by artist Arian Noveir so wonderful; not only do they look great, but they manage to capture that unguarded side that so many superheroes possess. They’re a beautiful, subversive look at the traditional hero-figure.

More of Noveir’s art (including some more superheroes and a wonderful nod to Freddie Mercury of Queen) can be found on his DeviantArt Gallery page.

Love his Supes, and by God that needs to be the cover of an abstract Batman art-book.

Anyway your corner of the web is not so dusty, sir.

You wouldn't know it to look at it!

But I have this hot pink fluffy thing here and I keep meaning to use it for something that isn't kinky, so... :P
