Pointillist Power

Simply stunning “pin art”  installations from still life photographer Philip Karlberg.

Using the oversimplified pointillist technique Philip has worked some real visual genius to achieve some incredibly recognisable characters in his work.

Around 1200 coloured pegs and some very strategic lighting has given the rather impressive results.

If you didn’t get them all, they were (from the top) Karl Lagerfeld, Jackie O, Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp, John Belushi, Steve McQueen.

Check out Philip’s other work here.
