Chinese artists will handpaint your Instagram Pic

If you think you’ve got an Instagram pic worthy of wall space, pixeli.st might be for you. This company offers handmade oil paintings from your face Instagrams and photos, with the tagline ‘your pixels, our paint’. It’s really quite amazing how realistic their paintings are.

This company employs artists (‘mostly art university graduates’) in and around Xiamen and each artist employs the ‘photorealist’ style, making it look as much like the original as possible.

A few conditions to using this service, though: you can only have your own Instagram pics painted and there are no returns, so you better be ready to face the ugly truth when your oversized duckface on canvas comes shipped to your door.
