Alan Craig Artwork uses a grand scale to craft pop culture portrait art. The American artist Alan Craig recreates iconic figures using aerial photography to snap gatherings of people. Clad in black or dark clothing, unless they are portraying the lips, these formations of people contrast the stark white background they stand over, creating outlined depictions of famous faces. Craig's work is quite similar in nature to pixel art.

Craig's work is aptly described by Vinings Gallery website as, "the blending of disparate influences and media is visually apparent in all of Craig's works, which demonstrate a broad knowledge and appreciation of the human form as well as the colorful world these beings occupy."

Some of the faces of Craig has captured are Elvis Presley, Audrey Hepburn, Lucille Ball and the Statue of Liberty. Stats for People-Made Celeb Portraits Trending: Older & Warm
