Using graphite and india ink, Washington, DC. based artist Ashley Oubré embraces 'abnormalities' in her photorealistic illustrations.
Oubré focuses on moments of vulnerability and insecurities, instead making them highlights of beauty, strength and appeal against societal standards. “I try to craft a portrait in a way that will reach the aforementioned with a delicacy that says to them and anyone who feels that they’re losing, feels that they’ve lost – I understand.” photos courtesy of artist: hifructose.com
