Have you ever noticed that the doll makers never create realistic products? But thanks to doll repainters they can be as realistic as the real person. That’s where artist Noel Cruz comes in. He buys existing dolls and carefully repaints them to look more like real celebrity.
Noel was born in the Philippines, in a very poor family. From an early age he had to work as a cleaner to support financially his family. When he was 12 years old he watched beauty contest “Miss Universe”, which inspired him to deal with art. From the age of 16 he was painting portraits and landscapes on order, although he does not completed any art school.
Noel’s dolls are very popular and can be purchased only on eBay. Prices range from $ 500 to $ 3,500. The most expensive doll – Angelina Jolie, was sold up for $ 4300.
