In March, a West Palm Beach native posted a video to Instagram of a portrait that he made of international megastar and the subject of a recent popular Netflix film, Beyoncé. Aside from being a beautiful rendering of the 37-year-old singer, the piece was noteworthy because it was made almost entirely out of Skittles.

To create the portrait, Claudio first formulated the idea in Photoshop, experimenting with colors and lighting. He then measured the size of the canvas to his liking and painted the image. Finally, he meticulously sorted the Skittles by hand (purchasing rare white Skittles in the process) and glued each in its place on the canvas. “As far as the white Skittles goes…the whole process, going to Amazon or finding a private seller that sells them is like a whole process in itself. It takes around three weeks,” Claudio told The Palm Beach Post.
