Montana Engels is a young female Belgian artist who has invented a new way of painting portraits. Using only strokes, Montana creates a realistic portrait that looks abstract up close, but becomes more detailed as soon as people step back from the painting. 

The play of shadow, light and thickness of the lines is what makes her work so complex. Behind each stripe is a complicated thought process in which Montana takes into account the next stripe as well as her previous stripe. 

This unique "STRIPED" concept is Montana's signature style.
