The Antique Geekery of Alex Gross

An artist specialising in “…oil paintings on canvas whose themes include globalisation, commerce, great beauty, dark mayhem and the remorseless passage of time,” New Yorker Alex Gross is, on the side, a rather glorious nerd.

Taking turn of the century photographs and transforming them into vintage trading cards, Gross has created a series of dorkily divine, haunting and hilarious images that we could cry, we love them so much.

Obviously, we had to share.
