Example 1: This is the basic example that shows how to use the avatar component.

app.component.html




<h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
<h5>PrimeNg Avatar Component</h5>
<p-avatar label="A" styleClass="p-mr-1"></p-avatar>
<p-avatar
  label="B"
  styleClass="p-mr-1"
  size="large"
  [style]="{'background-color':'#3714e3', 'color': '#ffffff'}">

  styleClass="p-mr-1"
  size="xlarge"
  [style]="{'background-color':'#1eff00', 'color': '#ff8400'}">
</p-avatar>

app.module.ts




import { NgModule } from "@angular/core";
import { BrowserModule } from "@angular/platform-browser";
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } 
    from "@angular/platform-browser/animations";
import { AppComponent } from "./app.component";
import { AvatarModule } from "primeng/avatar";
  
@NgModule({
  imports: [BrowserModule, 
              BrowserAnimationsModule, 
            AvatarModule],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
})
export class AppModule {}
