Pedro Oliveira has portrayed celebrities Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Rihanna using bright and engaging colors that seem to take your eyes hostage and hold them for ransom.

Pedro Oliveira’s Technicolored technique does not take away from the familiar faces, but instead complements the faces which are seen everywhere in our culture, from checkout lines to TV screens.

Implications - Artists have always used celebrities as muses; this photographer took an unusual spin on this phenomenon by using neon colors and hyperrealistic illustration techniques. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by infusing marketing materials and ad campaigns with vibrant hues to shock viewers and grab their attention.
