Transformations is a collection of mixed media paintings by Alex Gross. On each page, he “transforms” a vintage cabinet card photograph into a pop culture character, through painting with acrylic and oil paints. Popular superheroes and supervillains, famous musicians, science fiction and fantasy characters, movie monsters, and many more all make appearances in this book.
Alex has been building this body of work for over a decade now and it continues to grow in popularity. This book shows each image before it was painted upon, and afterwards. Showing precisely how each image was altered adds a uniquely enjoyable aspect to this art book.
