In April, 19-year-old Sana S, also from Kerala, had made a similar one on Mammootty. She used 331 names and made it on A3 size sheet, which helped her clinch a place in India Book of Records. Her certificate read, "She made a beautiful monochrome typographic portrait of Malayalam actor on A3 size sheet using 331 movie names, as confirmed on March 4, 2021."
Explanation: But first, what is typographic portrait?
A picture is worth a thousand words, but what if one can make a picture using only words? That's what a typographic portrait is. It is a form of art that involves words, phrases or letters, and can be a painting, a sculpture, digital output or any other technique that an artist wants to use. Typography has been seen in many modern art renditions.
Record: Mohanlal's portrait also entered India Book Of Records
It's not just Mammootty who has inspired the youth of Kerala to create typographic portraits. Even Mohanlal Viswanathan has one such fan, named Sooraj Santhosh. The 20-year-old Kottayam native drew the portrait of the Drishyam actor using 346 names of his movies (as confirmed on April 9, 2021) and entered the India Book Of Records. The portrait showed his character Mangalassery Neelakandan from Devasuram.
