Have you ever considered traveling back in time and meet your biggest idols in great historical eras? Suppose you are an upcoming artist, wouldn’t it be great to meet Leonardo da Vinci himself to embrace his knowledge and wisdom of art?
This can only be possible if someone actually invents a time machine. But Magdalena Vissagio, an artist and a comic book writer, has come up with the next best thing.
Meet Magdalena, she is an artist who does realistic recreations of historical figures to show you how they would look like if they were living in the 21st century.
Trust me when I say this, her realistic art is mind-blowing! Can you also believe that she does all these realistic recreations using only her mobile phone? It’s shocking, right? She has said that the only apps she uses are FaceApp and Airbrush.
Below is her tweet regarding her art:
“A lot of people think I’m a digital artist or whatever, so let me clarify how I work. Everything you see here is done in Faceapp+Airbrush on my phone. On the outside, each takes between 15-30 mins.”
Well, what are we waiting for? Let’s hurry and look at her amazing artwork in the gallery below.
