Oblong Celebrity Depictions

Vincenzo Illustrates Some Chuckle-Inducing Images of Stars

— August 30, 2011 — Pop Culture
Movie stars often have very distinctive facial features, and with these Vincenzo caricatures amplifying those parts to hyperbolic extremes, stars actually seem much more creepy than they are attractive. But that's also the allure of these illustrations as the disproportional faces almost take viewers on a surrealistic journey.

Some of the more obvious celebrities featured in these these Vincenzo caricatures include Russell Crowe, William Shatner, Steve Buscemi, Conan O'Brien, Dennis Leary, and the late Amy Winehouse.

Implications - Consumers gravitate towards celebrity products because stars act as benchmarks of success in North American society. Consumers consciously and unconsciously want to emulate the fame and monetary wealth these media figures have amassed. Corporations may consider offering products and services which satiate consumer desire to "be" celebrities as a way of generating revenue.
Trend Themes
1. Celebrity Caricatures - Exploring the exaggerated features of celebrities in illustrations offers a unique and humorous perspective on their iconic images.
2. Hyperbolic Portrayals - Exaggerating facial features in caricatures enhances the surrealistic quality and creates a visually captivating experience for viewers.
3. Consumer Celebrity Obsession - Consumer desire to emulate the fame and success of celebrities presents opportunities for corporations to develop products and services that cater to this aspiration.
Industry Implications
1. Art and Illustration - The art and illustration industry can utilize hyperbolic portrayals and celebrity caricatures as a medium to entertain and captivate audiences.
2. Entertainment and Media - The entertainment and media industry can leverage consumer obsession with celebrities by creating content and experiences that fulfill the desire to connect with celebrity culture.
3. Consumer Products - The consumer products industry can develop celebrity-inspired merchandise and services to capitalize on the consumer aspiration to emulate the fame and wealth of media figures.
