Kang Kang Hoon's Insanely Detailed Portraits Are Not Photographs... | Art and the Artists Who Make It | Scoop.it

Korean artist Kang Kang Hoon has a knack for crafting strange portraits, where his subjects don curlers, cigarettes and scuba masks instead of the standard headshot regalia. His oddly framed individuals wield startling assortments of objects including paper grenades, scissors and high-caloric donuts, forgoing friendlier items like sports equipment or family pets that might accompany a typical photo.
