Artist’s Surrealistic Portraits Of Celebrities Are Turning Heads On Twitter

The art of the caricature is a time-honored practice for connoisseurs with only the most high-end of tastes. A new face on the famously competitive caricature-artist scene is Twitter user @Tw1tterPicasso, who draws exquisite caricature portraits of celebrities and posts them for the world to see. Many of his works have taken the art world by storm, including this recreation of 50-cent:

Fans of "Vicky" flocked to this abstract take on her look:

@Tw1tterPicasso covers subjects both well-known and somewhat obscure…

His art style remains consistent regardless, however.

There are those who don't understand @Tw1tterPicasso's style…

…those without much time or experience critiquing high-quality portraiture.

Like any great caricature artist, he chooses which facial features to exaggerate with deft pen strokes.

Hopefully, the future sees many more works of genius from @Tw1tterPicasso. He is truly capturing the essence of mankind.
