These lifelike celebrity portraits speak to a near obsession with famous crowds among the artistically inclined. Although the faces of stars like Angelina Jolie and Courtney Love may not be the first that come to mind when thinking of oil paints and canvas, they have actually become the primary focus of countless creative projects.

Extremist icon illustrations and farcical leading men drawings are now being sold online and at official art displays. Adoring fans with a particular interest in icons like Michael Jackson and Marilyn Monroe have been accommodated here, collecting droves of sculptures, carvings and mind-blowing illustrations that replicate the exact features of such magnates.

The most exceptional aspect of these pieces are their realistic characteristics. Some of the images are reminiscent of actual pictures, confusing viewers as to what they are actually looking at.
