Amidst COVID-19, Brazilian artist, Jorge Roriz (65 years old), who is famous for creating colourful costumes and fabulous floats for the Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival, is now painting lifelike face masks.
The masks have become popular with people who want to have an impression while still remaining protected.
According to Roriz, he will take time on the details like skin hue and lips, then he will paint the person’s lower face on to a white mask.
“It’s important that people use masks to look after themselves. Many people use this mask in order not to lose their identity,” Roriz said.
The people will look like a ventriloquist because the "mouth" on the mask will not appear to move as they speak.
