An artist transforms Jay into Bey, Kanye into Kim and Brad into Angelina with, um, “contouring”
Contouring is everywhere right now. The amazing transformative power of some expertly blended highlights is totally incredible, but one artist has just taken it to a whole new level. Saint Hoax is back with his latest work, and it’s a gender-bending take on some of the world’s most famous celebrity couples.
On his Instagram, the artist, satirist, and sociopolitical activist shared a couple of brief videos in which he transformed Kanye, Jay-Z, Brad Pitt, and others into their lovely ladies. Yup, from Jay-Z to Beyonce with just a few strokes of the contouring brush…
…OK, and also Photoshop.
Also, can we talk about how on point the music is?
And here’s one more for you:
“An embedded infatuation with pop culture and politics drove Saint Hoax to share his PoPlitically Incorrect vision. Hoax combines tangible and digital mediums to create beautiful visual lies that tell an ugly truth. ”
Most of his work does focus in some way around pop culture. Whether it’s reimagining male celebrities as drag performers, putting pop culture phenomenons together (like the PSL and the Spice Girls), or letting Disney princesses save themselves, his work always walks a fine line between pop weirdness and thought-provoking explorations of the things we love.
