Icons Unmasked: The Secret Identities of Pop Icons


Chicago-based artist and witty extraordinaire Alex Solis is at it again with his amusing new series of illustrations, “Icons Unmasked. Solis first gained internet fame with his “Famous Chunkies”, a series of illustrations where he reimagines pop culture icons as morbidly obese.

In “Icons Unmasked”, Solis takes a more in-depth look at some of our most beloved pop culture icons and shows us who they really are inside. Although the hiding alter ego might seem unusual, each mashup is actually a well-thought pairing as you slowly realize that these characters relate to each other in unexpected and meaningful ways.
