Pakistani makeup artist and stylist Shoaib Khan took his skills the extra mile once again to recreate the villainous Joker, Joaquin Phoenix’s Batman-derived character that has laughed his way to the top of the box office.
Shoaib Khan shared the disconcerting look via Instagram, donning a painted white face, red coat, and green hair with the iconic facial expression of the character.
“Being an artist we feel every emotion more than any other person, and you can see those emotions through our work,” he revealed via his caption, touching base with his followers about how artist’s work with dedication despite what’s going on in their personal lives.
Khan continued, “No matter what’s going on in our lives we still have to be at work on time and do our work with all the dedication.”
The makeup artists also got personal with the struggles he faces in his life and how he could relate to the Joker on some levels.
“Sometimes I want to cry, sometimes I want to take a day off and sometimes I just want to go with the flow and with all these things I feel that we gather our reactions inside somewhere and we don’t take them out or we don’t react on certain things,” he said.
“Recently I watched Joker and I don’t know I felt that this story is telling lots of people’s stories and I could relate to it, so I thought my next look should be dedicated to this great character and I tried my best to give all my emotions in one look.”
This isn’t the first time Khan has transformed himself into famous characters that made us do a double take. Recently, the stylist took on the spellbinding Maleficent, Angelina Jolie’s fairytale character that hit cinemas again last month.
