Excellent Portraits Made of Thousands of Fingerprints

What you will see in this showcase will really amaze you. These portraits were made by Charles Thomas “Chuck” Close (born July 5, 1940),one of the world’s leading modern artist, focuses on portraits of himself and his family and friends, often produced at a very large scale.  

He typically begins with a photograph of a face, creating a painting or print through a complex grid-based reconstruction of the image that he accomplishes by hand through one of many techniques that are unique to Close’s work. His paintings are even more impressive, given that Close had to relearn how to use his hands following a 1988 spinal infection that left him a quadriplegic.
