'Polygonal Portraits' by Feel Desain reinforces that I am too well-read in celebrity culture as I was able to identify each one of these famous faces with ridiculous ease. What also helped, though, was the amazing staff at Feel Desain who did an incredible job at recreating these mugshots using only a series of triangles. Kudos to the emerging blog magazine.
'Polygonal Portraits' were made using a nifty new iPad app called Poly that allows users to trace geometric shapes over portraits. As you can see for yourself, the results are stunning and I wouldn't mind downloading the app to try making my own polygonal portraits.
The list of celebrities in 'Polygonal Portraits' is extensive, but viewers will no doubt recognize Angelina Jolie, Heath Ledger, Paris Hilton, George Clooney, Clint Eastwood, Pink and even President Obama.
