IT’S ALIVE! (Monochrome)

Now printed in glorious monochrome, sparks fly as Dr Frederick Fronkensteen points at his creation. Watched on by Igor and Inga, the foursome from Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein, will be forever immortalised in this recreation of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel fresco. Something for the black and white film connoisseur.

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, known simply as, Michelangelo, spent an estimated 4 years painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The central panel of which, ‘The Creation of Adam’ is probably his most recognisable piece. Combine this iconic image with characters from Mel Brooks’ much loved film, and things are guaranteed to liven up a blank wall.

Having reworked a few of the old masters, other characters of popular culture presented themselves and things became more adventurous. This collection of prints began with Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘A Lady with an Ermine’. The lady in question was replaced with Ellen Ripley and the ermine with a small alien. It worked, and soon Spock, Yoda and Deadpool all followed suit.

All work is created with Adobe Photoshop and Wacom tablet.
