Faces In The Phone Book By Alex Queral

Alex Queral transforms the ordinary phone book into a creative piece of art, carving into its pages funny caricatures of famous people. Can’t stop wondering though  if putting a face inside a phone book, makes it a face book. Enjoy!

For his sculptures, Queral uses a very sharp knife and acrylic medium to set the detail areas, peeling away the pages to reveal the portrait. In the end, he applies a black wash to deepen the features of the portrait, and seals the book with acrylic to preserve the work.
