Artist’s Portrayal of Many Movie Characters

27 Nov 2014 by Matthew Kwan, No Comments »

Have you ever wondered what characters from well-known movies would look like in a century a while ago? Characters such as Captain America (Marvel superhero) or Chewbacca (Star Wars wookie) are depicted as if they existed in the 16th century.

These depictions are shown in portraits made by Sacha Goldberger, which add a new style to all the characters many of us remember and enjoy in the movies. The collection is called, “Super Flemish” which includes 39 portraits which all show a unique blend of the old with the new.

17th century portraiture techniques can be seen as what was used to portray the characters such as counterpointing light and shadow. These techniques create an illustration of nobility and fragility of the many super powerful.

Not only there are the good guys however there are the bad guys too. There are villains such as Darth Vader who is shown having a ruff around his neck and different materials for his outfit.

Overall, I think Mr. Goldberger’s work is an interesting mix of sci-fi (there are a few portraits that are not sci-fi characters) with 16th century. The portraits create new thoughts of the characters by just looking at the facial expressions and the 16th century outfits of the characters we saw in the theater. Therefore, if you want to view at well-known movie characters in a different way such as the Hulk as a Duke, go check out the “Super Flemish” collection now!
