Alien With a Phone Home

Alien With a Phone Home

In my painting “Alien With a Phone Home”, part of my satirical collection “Forbidden Universal”, I decided to blend the worlds of pop culture and classical art. I chose to depict E.T., the iconic character from Steven Spielberg’s film, as the subject of ‘The Girl with a Pearl Earring’ by Johannes Vermeer. E.T., known for his iconic glowing finger and friendly nature, was painted with the same mysterious and captivating expression as the girl in Vermeer’s famous piece.

I carefully integrated the traditional muted oil tones of Vermeer’s original work with neon space-vibe colors, creating a visually arresting contrast that draws the viewer in. The warmth and approachability of E.T. is highlighted against the darker, muted background.

As viewers examine the canvas, they are encouraged to contemplate the fusion of classic and contemporary, earthly and extraterrestrial. This piece not only serves as a tribute to two iconic figures in art and cinema but also as an invitation to consider the ways in which different cultural elements can come together to create something new and captivating.

Order Options:
