The Conflicted Self Portraits of Christian Edler

christian-edler-self-portraits004

The self-portraits of Christian Edler explore the inner battles we have with ourselves, as the German artist suggests self conflict by painting his own likeness with various deformities and mutations. Some of Edler’s oil paintings are bit more optimistic, as he cuts himself loose from puppet strings and appears to see a light, while others display a cracked figure or image of self destruction. See more the artist’s work below.
