WPAP Art – Manny Pacquiao

Here is my first completed project of 2018: a personally traced portrait of boxer Manny Pacquiao made entirely out of different shapes and colours. This was inspired by an artist named Wedha Abdul Rasyid, who is known as the creator of ‘WPAP’ art. According to Sungging Priyanto, via Behance, ‘WPAP’ stands for ‘Wedha’s Pop Art Portraits’, which is an Indonesian pop art genre. ‘WPAP’ art relies on a source image, first of all, which is then improvisationally traced to create a human portrait consisting of diverse shapes and colours.
