Caricatures are portraits which try to capture the likeness of an individual in a humorous manner. They exaggerate defining features of an individual while maintaining the overall likeness. In the west, they are popular souvenirs to take home from a vacation. The trend of caricatures is quickly gaining prominence in India. Caricatures are precisely imprecise for a reason! One should be able to recognize a person by a simple glance at their caricature.
Caricature is an Italian word combining ‘carico’ and ‘caricare’, meaning ‘to load’ or to ‘exaggerate’. The first Caricature was drawn by the two brothers in Italy in 1590. The art form has evolved gradually over many generations.
Today’s generation enjoys getting caricatures made at weddings, birthdays and corporate gatherings. A caricature artist leaves a mark in the hearts of people.
Today Philip visited our office and made Caricatures, I must say Philip is really blessed with the skills and really brings out the smallest of the details on your face in his art.
We really enjoyed his presence in the office and each of our employees had a big smile on their face after seeing the Caricatures. Truly gifted artist. Highly recommended!
Graphical representations of people and their emotions are live and transmitting as expected from arts…… appreciate his work.
Few of the best creations in the field of arts, appreciate his thoughts and its representation on canvas ……loved his work!.
Philip’s caricatures were on point. We had caricatures made of our entire family! The exaggerations were on point as well, so were the portraits.
Philip’s work is way too professional. He is too good.
