A artist who goes by Tw1tterPicasso is going viral because of his very unique drawings of celebrities. 

Some people call them portraits, others call them caricatures, but whatever your refer to them as, they definitely leave an impression. No star is safe from his artwork - he puts his spin on musicians, reality stars, actors, athletes and more.

Not much is known about the mysterious Tw1tterPicasso but what is known is that his name is Corey and he lives in Australia. 

According to his Instagram profile, he's been drawing since he was zero years old. He's posted his portraits since 2016 and says he has no formal training - he learned how to draw from his mom, who's also an artist.

@champagnepapi fan art. Sorry I haven’t been posting lately but yous wouldn’t believe it. I was kidnaped by the illuminaughty AGAIN! This time they sent there elite tracker Fetty wap after me! It’s pretty much impossible to escape fetty. Since he’s missing an eye his other senses are far greater then the average human beans. He can hear 10x better then a dog, can smell a drop of blood in 1000 meters of water and he can also fly. He captured me and took me back the the illuminaughty prison when I got there I was suprised to see how bad they were treating poor fetty. The kardashian family were laughing at him teasing his eye and at one point I think Donald trump spat on him. I came up with the idea to persuade fetty to free me. It’s very hard to communicate with him he doesn’t know many words so I had to use his language. I got his attention he came over to me. I asked him fetty do you like it here? “Yerrr babouy” he replied! “You don’t have to work for these evil people you can come with me on adventures for rare inks and papers 1738” he got excited he’s dreads started waging “zoo gang” he replied. “Ok bud help me get out of here remmy boys yeah yaa” I said. He turned around and let out a super sonic “SQUAAAA” it was worse then a flash bang grenade the whole kardashian family’s ass implants exploded in sync and their lips fell off! I hopped on fettys back And we flew off into the sunset

In an interview over DMs, he told Mel Magazine,

"My style is realism, but I like to put a little twist on it. I find normal realism drawings boring. Sometimes you gotta give people 14 fingers and 39 teeth. Something that will make people remember the drawing."
