Cubist portraits are abstract.  Pablo Picasso would create faces that were unrealistic and where proportions were lost.  Georges Braque, a fellow Cubist painter, would create portraits where it seems as if their face was cut up and reassembled.  Edwardo Setien creates portraits similar to Picasso and Braque.
Portraits are personal.  A viewer can be staring at a person they do not know yet trying to find out their secrets, their stories, and why they were important enough to be recreated in art.  Setien adds another level of intimacy by having themes of health.  His DNA series combines the science behind the being of a person and visually creating the abstract portrait.  Even when the subject matter does not include a face, he has developed a way of creating new profiles.
