Making you rethink the term’ playing with matches’, artist Mike Bell creates portraits of iconic celebrities on the packets, and then manipulates the matches to form hand poses.
His sparky work includes John Lennon making a victory sign, Marilyn Monroe with diamonds on her fingers and Jack Sparrow with mini cutlasses.
There are also sulphur versions of Elton John with his piano, Humphrey Bogart and Robert De Niro as Taxi Driver’s Travis Bickle giving us the middle finger…and my personal favorite all four original members of KISS!
