Amazing Smoke Portraits by Octavian Mielu

Octavian Mielu is a 26 years old Romanian graphic designer. He has come up with an incredible series of celebrity portraits that deserve some recognition. What makes these unique is they are created completely out of smoke. The uncanny resemblance created by these smoke portraits are unbelievable. If you’re looking for something creative to hang on your wall, this is something that will truly make a statement. You can purchase these posters over at indiegogo.

Octavian describes his techniques and thoughts behind his creations:

“I use different smoke photos and techniques that combine perfectly to manipulate misty impressions of iconic public figures, such as Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Micky Mouse and more. The impermanent, unpredictable and fragile nature of smoke has allowed me to create these wonderfully eerie images, and I’m really pleased with how they’ve turned out. Why smoke?  Because the lines are beautiful, the transparency forms different shades of black and grey and the lines of smoke make striking portraits.”
