Artist and graphic designer Stefan Da Costa Gomez, paints classic portraits of Hollywood stars. Though each painting hints at the vices that would ultimately kill their subjects, Gomez means to bring them “back to life” by rendering them in such a way as to become 3D when viewed with traditional anaglyph 3D glasses (red-cyan/blue), an attempt to “combine the classic analog craft of painting with the contemporary technology and today’s hype of digital 3D film to create a new way of viewing and experiencing a painting.”
The paintings reveal hints of the tragic ending of these Hollywood figures. All work is painted in acrylics.
