The celebrity sculptures by quirky artist Marie-Lou Desmeules are a creative fusion of plastic, acrylic paint and the human body. Each sculpture is made using a live model as a canvas with a series of plastic sheets and acrylic paint layered over top to manipulate the model's face into that of a celebrity's.

Canadian artist Marie-Lou Desmeules created the 'Painting Surgeries' celebrity sculpture series to comment on the growing cosmetic surgery obsession. Using live models, Marie-Lou Desmeules layered sheets of plastic and acrylic paint to reshape the model's face and turn them into life-like replicas of popular celebrities. The results are somewhat grotesque and even distorted representations of celebrities like Steve Jobs, Pamela Anderson, Hulk Hogan and even Barbie.
