Many of us have grown up listening to the haunting compositions of Beethoven and Chopin. They were masters of music and their magical melodies continue to move our souls even today. However, not many of us know the real faces behind these legendary figures as they lived in an era where photography hadn’t become common yet. But Hadi Karimi is determined to make the world see what these artists really looked like.
The 3D artist devotes his time to mainly create hyper-realistic portraits of influential figures from the past that were never photographed. Apart from bygone artists like Beethoven and Chopin, his portfolio also includes personalities such as Friedrich Nietzsche and Sylvia Plath, along with yesteryear stars like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.
