Artist Conor Collins has been busy at work on a portrait of British diver Tom Daley made entirely of homophobic tweets sent to him after he came out.

Collins lives in Manchester, UK.

See the finished product, AFTER THE JUMP...

We like this trend of turning hate mail into art - ala - most recently - Honey Maid.

  4. Is Daley’s cock that high up on his abdomen or is that a strap-on ?

  8. Good for him. This is smart, clever, classy and creative. (And, of course, Daley is definitely easy on the eyes in any medium.)

  10. Hate tweet art is becoming all the rage. Witness this, and Honey Maid
    Keep the hate coming. It's good for the galleries.

  11. That's the way it's done. Take the hate and turn it back on itself and create something positive and beautiful out of it.

  12. Great idea to destroy the puerile hate.
    Tom Daley is an all round sweet popular guy.
