Portraits Made Using People as Pixels
American artist Craig Alan creates unique portraits of pop-culture icons using people as pixels. Some of his famous pieces include Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy and the Statue of Liberty, but probably the most incredible one is the portrait of Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
Craig Alan was born in 1971 in San Bernardino, California. Though he was always drawn to the artistic side of life, Craig’s creative luminance did not wholly shine until his family transferred to New Orleans in his youth. It was here that Craig’s capacity for detailed visual interpretation took root. In this city by the sea, rich in its culture and outlets for creative expression, Craig began exploring his own ingenious impulses. Craig’s earliest experimentation took the form of street portraiture, an endeavor that helped him perfect his flair for replicating the human figure and afforded the budding artist a sense of economic autonomy.
