Familiar strangers. Everyone has them. People you met, but don't really know. You cross them on the street, but you don't stop. You look, but you never talk. You've seen them many times before, but you never know when you'll meet again. Anonymous faces that shape the face of the city. In this series of paintings, I bring a tribute to my familiar strangers. The extras of my daily life get the leading role in these portraits.  ©  Saskia Vanderstichele
