3 Artists Giving a Different Perspective On Celebrity Portraits
Yung Jake, Tony Rodriguez and Failunfailunmefailun are 3 artists who are doing something different when it comes to celebrity portraits. We wanted to showcase their work in this months featured artists blog post.
Who said portraits have to be created with art materials like acrylic paint, charcoal or watercolours? Artist Yung Jake is creating celebrity portraits out of emoji’s. It’s certainly unique and we love it!
Illustrator Tony Rodriquez creates art digitally but with the look of a traditional pen and ink drawing. His work has been included in publishers such as the Rolling Stone Magazine and Washington Post.
Creative Director Failunfailunmefailun posts some pretty crazy pieces on Instagram. This one is from the ‘Timeless Faces’ project where it’s a collage of Amy Winehouse with ‘Orphan Girl at the Cemetery’ by Eugène Delacroix and below that its Benedict Cumberbatch with Van Gogh Self Portrait.
