Artist Argenis Pinal cleverly recreates the features of comic book-inspired characters using face paint. The immaculate recreations look identical to the comic book characters that inspired them. The artist's immense talent allows him to transform into a range of pop culture icons.

The images look as though they have been hand-drawn onto a piece of paper rather than hand-painted onto skin. However, a closer look at each portrait reveals the real face and characteristics of Argenis Pinal.

Each painted superhero character was selected by the artist and the characters range from popular male heroes such as Thor to iconic female heroines like Superwoman. As well as taking a gender-neutral approach to artwork, this project beautifully highlights the artist's versatile range of talent.
