25 Awesome Contemporary Portrait Artists

Bryan Lewis Saunders

Genre: Mixed Media

Almost 20 years ago, Bryan Lewis Saunders resolved to make a self-portrait every day for the rest of his life. While such a claim could easily be dismissed as a trite conceptual gesture or publicity stunt, he's kept it up thus far, filling rows of sketchbooks with his own likeness in various media, styles, and states of mind over the years. Not every portrait is available online, but the artist has assembled albums that trace themes of love, anger, or pain over his life, that were made while on drugs, or while hiking the Appalachian trail (where, apparently, he did not see a mirror for some time).
