Looking a lot like retro mixed media photography collages, Sam Grant’s vintage paintings are surreal and incredibly vibrant.

The American painter and photographer’s new series ‘Double Vision’ is a mixture of pop culture relevant images with a mid-20th century twist. Grant’s vintage paintings are somehow perfectly balanced when it comes to the artist’s realistic technique while still being able to give a whimsical feel.   

Humorous and colorful, the pieces look like collage compositions that are like a visual mishmash of surreal, retro and contemporary culture and references. 

Playing with ideas of love and beauty to modern day texting, Grant’s subtle and cheeky artwork together with the vintage imagery is bound to be a hit with audiences.
