Watch the time lapse video above of one man painting a realistic portrait of Beyoncé in 60 hours. Chris Minafo is the genius artist behind the giant portrait, he calls Bey his “idol.”
The video details the 60-hour process Minafo went through over 14 days to create the flawless portrait. “This is the largest painting I have made so far, and I took this challenge on as one less farewell to my teenage years,” he told Elite Daily. “I wanted to prove to myself that I could paint my idol taller then I stood before I turned 20.”
There are many more tributes he has done, so far he has artistically created Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, and Arianna Grande.
“Beyoncé is quite possibly the most unfathomable person on this planet to me… I really hope this painting finds its way to her, and maybe puts a smile on her face as a thank you for the countless she has put on mine.”
