Many are so used to seeing perfectly Photoshopped famed faces that plain magazine editorials start to intrigue less and less. This is why these subtly watercolored illustrations by Barcelona-based Chidy Wayne are captivating -- it presents celebrities and fashion icons in a way that is not too common. This series of paintings were featured in Irene Claver's book 'Trendy.'
Familiar faces like Dean and Dan Caten of DSQUARED2, Kate Moss, Karl Lagerfeld, Rihanna, Kanye West and Elvis Presley are captured in art form. Hand-painted lines and proportions have an enticing effect, since they are freshly different from the airbrushed photography we are constantly bombarded with. Not to mention, the artist's choice of colors is stunning. Some images are black-and-white with small accents of color.
