Alex Gross is a full-time artist who is absolutely fascinated by old photos and vintage pictures, especially those with strong hints of Victorian Era - a time period in which the artist confesses he would like to have lived himself.

There is just something intrinsically beautiful about Vintage, and Alex Gross has surely done full justice to these old photographs from the 1870s. Using oil and acrylic the artist has breathed a new life into them, transforming the people of yesterday into incredible vintage superheroes and characters of pop culture.

Below, you will find a wide selection of the artist's works which we hope you will find enjoyable, so scroll down and see for yourself!

She looks much younger here than in the movie. (Edit just in case: That wasn't meant as a complain; it's still great work)

Am now picturing Star Wars as a silent movie. With the old-timey piano music and everything.

I think the movies are still looking for the right actor to play Harvey Dent. In the original comic, he was a shockingly handsome actor, known for his looks, and when he lost his beauty he lost his mind. Maybe Ralph Fiennes/Jude Law/Julian Sands when they were a bit younger?
