- It will take a team of 20 artists nearly six months to make the figure
The life-like figure of the Latin Grammy winner will join the lineup at the ICON Park attraction in 2022.
In preparation to make the figure, studio artists took hundreds of photos and measurement0 from every angle for reference.
Maluma, whose real name is Juan Luis Londoño, also shared a behind-the-scenes look at the process on his Instagram account.
“I’m a big dreamer,” Maluma said in statement. “I remember when I was in high school saying that I wanted to be here at the museum and everything is happening; nothing is too big to make it happen.”
Maluma’s figure—which will take a team of 20 artists in London nearly six months to create—will be dressed in an authentic white Versace double-breasted jacket and black Bottega Veneta shoes.
He joins other music artists with wax figures at Madame Tussauds Orlando such as Pitbull, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Madonna.
