In many people’s minds, the Coen Brothers’ ‘Big Lebowski’ is the epitome of a classic film and recently artist Joe Forkan has taken this one step further, creating tributes to both the film and classic masterpieces. His project, The Lebowski Cycle, uses such works as Velazquez’s Portrait of Pablo de Valladolid and Carracci’s ‘The Baptism of Christ’ as inspiration for the scenes he has chosen to paint. The works do in fact have a distinctly classic look to them, bringing grandeur and poetry to a much loved film. See more of The Lebowski Cycle at joeforkanblog.com.
