Argentina based art collective Mondongo makes these amazingly detailed portraits using dripped plasticine. It is impressive how they manage to mold and modify plasticine to suit the color and texture for portraits.
Artist NFN Kalyan masterfully etched a series of glass plates, putting them all together to create these wonderful 3D portraits.
Using a lot of strategically placed nails and copious amounts of skilfully placed thread, designers Pamela Campagna and husband Thomas Scheiderbauer have managed to impress viewers with these portraits. Looking at the portraits, it is tough to assume how they ever managed to pass enough thread to make these portraits meaningful, without turning them into a mess of arbitrarily running thread and nails. Each of these pieces takes nearly a month to complete.
Given our own incompetence with the Rubik’s Cube, we are so totally astonished when anyone manages to make something so cool using that box of frustration and pain, or Rubik’s Cube as it is generally known. Even more so when the end results are about as interesting as MLK’s portrait made by Peter Fecteau, while working with Rubik’s Cubes alone.
The people at Mint Digital created this portrait of Steve Jobs as a tribute to the man. It is only fitting that the portrait be made of parts from a MacBook Pro. The portrait is titled “Rest in peace Mr. Steve and thank you very very much.”
During Napoleon’s invasion of Russia, English artist George Dawe painted 329 portraits of Russian military officers for the Military Gallery of the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. Artist Steve Payne used digital portraits of these paintings mixed with the magic of photoshop to give celebrities their style as Russian military generals. Call it wonderful execution, but most of these celebrities appear to be rather suited in their uniforms.
Primula Cheese commissioned artist Faye Halliday to create a series of celebrity portraits using cheese spread. Made for the British Cheese Week, the portraits have been made on a black canvas with the cheese spread used to draw shapes and shades that eventually work towards creating these portraits.
Graphic designer Michael McCabe has created a set of illustrations, portraits of musicians made from the lyrics used in their songs. Real cool, using words to create images that say a thousand words. It is always kind of impressive, imagining pictures being made from nothing but words themselves.
Cats: They’re everywhere. And now they’ve found a way even into classic portraits.
Everything gets better with toast done right. We could be talking of taste, but we are talking of art. Artist Henry Hargreaves decided to unlock the potential in toast and created these amazing celebrity portraits. Hargreaves did have support from Angela Barrow and Osvaldo Ponton who actually were toasting the bread. We kind of like the style of this bread-pixel art.
