Recently we’ve come across some awesome paintings created from vintage photos. Creating what he calls “piggyback art”, Alex Gross has taken a hobby of transforming old photos and artworks into new works by adding certain elements to the original. He’s compiled a collection of works he calls the “Heroes, Villains and Monsters” series.
This would be great to do from home once you scan old photos to your computer. If you’re family has tons of old photos and vintage items, you could create similar works of art for your family! To see more cool paintings, check out the rest of them here.
