By

Though nothing can compare to the wonder of seeing an artwork in person, we have tools to help you get a closer look at each of the pieces on Artspace.

By clicking on the zoom icon next to each artwork, you'll have the opportunity to explore each artwork and view hidden details, textures, and other indicators of the artistic process. 

Here are 5 artworks you'll want to zoom in on.

5. This detail of a work by Huang Yan may look like a traditional Chinese painting, but in actuality it is applied directly to the model’s face, his cultural heritage deeply imbedded into his personal identity, not unlike a tattoo.
