These film director portraits are conceived by Julian Rentzsch and Stellavie Design Manufaktur. The German artists create illustrations that celebrate the art of iconic cinema and pay tribute to directors like David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese in their works.
Acting as a narrative for their cinematic works, these film director portraits are infused with images of classic scenes from titles like Taxi Driver, Psycho and even Blue Velvet. In addition to illustrated film stills, each of these hyper-realistic portraits is also accented with a quote that made each filmmaker famous.
While Alfred Hitchcock's advice to young filmmakers is to "always make the audience suffer as much as possible", Lynch's quote suggests that "this whole world is wild at heart and weird on top".
