Mads Madsen is an incredibly talented young artist who specializes in black and white photo colorizing. The colorizing process is done on Photoshop and is in fact quite time-consuming. The artist’s coloring is extremely realistic and well-toned. He mentions that it takes him about 20-30 minutes to finish a portrait and a considerably longer time for group and outdoor photographs.

Most of his subjects are iconic figures such as Albert Einstein, Che Guevara and Charles Darwin, along with a significant amount of portraits of commanders from the civil war. Madsen is especially focused on civil war figures in his body of work and showcases many different coloring effects on a single picture in his portfolio to demonstrate the effects. The promising new artist’s work is even more realistic looking than the original photos.
