An unconventional artist used more than 20 tubes of toothpaste in order to create an amazing portrait as a tribute to the late, great Kobe Bryant.
With the world still coming to terms with the sudden, unexpected and tragic loss of Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna, one talented artist attempted to put a smile on people’s faces with his toothpaste portrait of the basketball legend.
Working out of his home in Orlando, Florida, Cristiam Ramos used more than 20 tubes of toothpaste, of varying colour, to create an amazingly accurate and respectful portrait of Kobe.
Cristiam said: “I made it as a tribute to the late Kobe Bryant.
“Toothpaste is related with smiling, and that’s what Kobe provoked in us with his talent and that’s how people want to remember him.”
