Kristen Holbrook Mucha's anatomy

Kristen Holbrook detail

Kristen Holbrook created this out-of-this-world triptych for a digital painting assignment as an art student in Brooklyn.  She based it off of Mucha’s elegant female figures and combined it with anatomy from the Atlas of Human Anatomy and Surgery.

Holbrook says of her piece, “I wanted to put together two things I loved, which was how beautiful the insides of a human could be combined with the outside. From left to right in the triptych the skin is coming off.”

A great mash-up of elegance and grotesqueness.

For those of you unfamiliar with Mucha’s females, here’s a reference photo that Kristen used for her piece.
