Clusters of crowds as pop figures

I chanced upon Indonesian artist Syaiful A Rachman’s 153 x 153 cm portrait of Michael Jackson at OdeToArt gallery recently, and it was amazing to zoom in on the acrylic painting and see how crowds of tiny little anonymous people make up the big picture.

Rachman has used a similar approach and point of view for portraits of other pop culture icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Angelina Jolie, Bruce Lee, Marilyn Monroe, The Beatles and even Spiderman. There’s a bit of hint here about how how these icons draw their power from common people from all factions of society.
