This New Zealand teen has shot to stardom after pictures on his Instagram account show him posing as famed female celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Beyonce.

Liam Martin, who goes by the Instagram username "waverider_", recreates movie scenes and celebrity photo shoots complete with outfits, make-up, hair, props and sets, Mail Online reported.

On his posts, he places his creatively reproduced version next to the original shot to show its respective similarities.

Martin's posts has since attracted six-figure digit likes and attracted celeb followers like Grande to be a part of his 1.5 million followers on the photo-sharing platform.

The publication reported Martin as saying that "Tyra Banks has reposted one (he) did of her", Australian singer-songwriter, Iggy Azalea "commented on a photo of (him) dressed up as her saying "You are next level", while "Cara Delevingne liked one of (his) photos of her".

But none of those three is his favourite. "I love doing Miley Cyrus because she's so crazy and controversial on her own. When I do her everybody loves it. People love her because she is so crazy - the crazier, the better," he added.

Why does he do it? Simple.

Just because he wanted to "do something out of the 'norm'."

He added: "Not many guys my age do that sort of thing, it's pushing the boundaries...People seem to love it so I keep doing it - it's crazy how much reaction I get.

"Around this time last year, Martin's Instagram was followed by 116,000 people, reported Uproxx. Check out some of his other recreations.
