Classic and current Hollywood stars meet in George Chamoun's 'Iconatomy' series. The Stockholm, Sweden-based jewelry artist delved into the world of graphic design to create these collage pieces, combining the portraits of movie icons past and present. Elizabeth Taylor and Angelina Jolie meet to create the perfect image of class, sass and sophistication, while Robert Pattinson and James Dean meld together for a stunning bad boy portrait.

Chamoun explains on his blog that the collages are not meant to compare the Hollywood stars, but act more as a study in visual imagery. While there are certain similarities between the work of Natalie Portman and Audrey Hepburn, the physical comparisons definitely outweigh those of their career choices. Perhaps the most striking portrait of the series is that of Scarlett Johansson and Marilyn Monroe, with the resemblance between the two being almost eerie.

George Chamoun's Iconatomy series is the first I've seen of his work, but hopefully not the last. The imaginative and talented artist definitely has an eye for striking celeb portraiture. Stats for Classic Hollywood Collage Art Trending: Older & Warm
