Orlando Sanchez: Dark Nudes
We came across this collection of gorgeously dark rendered nudes from creative Orlando Sanchez and were immediately attracted to their mysterious, graphic qualities. 'In the midst of July 2010, I arrived in Austin, Texas. I quickly embarked on a journey to figure out what I was going to do with my art. I needed to find out what fascinated and inspired me to create and explore a new body of art. The answer was beauty. The beauty of nature, and the beauty of women. Austin is a stunning city. To that end, I believe that your environment influences your work a great deal. For the past three years, my surroundings allowed me the opportunity to meet wonderful people whom I drew in the nude all whilst discovering the allure of Austin.
This series of work showcases my journey towards capturing the essence of beauty. I could not have done it without the participation of the amazing models and muses that I am so fortunate to work with. Each soul provided their own unique and captivating beauty. I hope you enjoy this series and find it as inspiring as I do.' Orlando Sanchez
