American artist Craig Alan often uses real humans as pixels for his creative portraits of pop culture icons. The results are fascinating portraits of several icons like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn or John F. Kenndy, set up with human bodies. The human component in these works almost gives the portraits a dynamic feeling, the images looking as if they could dissolve in just seconds.

Directing hundreds of people, sometimes even dressed in different colors, who each fulfill a unique roll within the portrait to create these iconic pieces shows that these designs by Alan are true masterpieces. His idea to use people in his art work that depicts other famous people is truly revolutionary and brilliant.
