It goes without saying that Tyler Mitchell’s photographs of Beyoncé for the September issue of Vogue are nothing short of works of art.
Just when we thought nothing could come anywhere close to the beauty of these photos, one artist painted her impressions of the images and they’re just breathtaking.
Professional illustrator Alice X. Zhang posted shots of her Vogue-inspired paintings on Twitter and Instagram and Beyoncé fans were astounded.
Zhang’s tweet gained 81K likes and 26K retweets, and her Instagram posts garnered thousands of likes.
And, it’s easy to see why:
Here’s a reminder of what Mitchell’s Vogue cover photos look like — and where Zhang drew her inspiration.
Fans were massively impressed by Zhang’s paintings, and many have requested prints of the artworks.
Wow. These paintings are pure perfection. You were blessed with a magnificent talent. Thanks for sharing the beauty of your artwork with all of us.
