Inspired by the many portraits of Rembrandt van Rijn, this digital reworking depicts the logical inhabitant of Vulcan. Rembrandt, who is generally considered to be one of the greatest artists of all time, painted during the Dutch Golden Age – an era that very much suits this famous, fictitious, science officer. Were they around today, I’m certain both would approve.
Rembrandt van Rijn’s portraiture never fails to influence. The way his subjects stood proud in the foreground gave his life’s collection of work a true sense of depth. A sense of depth that was a perfect match for this reworked piece.
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.
