Mihail Korubin-Miho creates colorful, expressive portraits that capture subtle gestures that can easily be taken for granted in daily interactions. Yet, in his works, these minute glances and movements speak volumes about a person’s frame of mind. Korubin-Miho has a penchant for blending realism with abstraction — floating shapes and smudgy colors seem to form the subjects’ body language as much as their physical features do. Fingers tying up a ponytail or hands covering a mouth can tell complex stories of lust or guilt. Take a look at some of his works below, images courtesy of Mihail Korubin-Miho.
