The Art of Frankenstein : 4gottenlore



The forever striking image of Charles Ogle’s Frankenstein Monster, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, is revisited and refreshed by the young American artist known as 4gottenlore.

The artist, who describes himself as a “guerilla voyeur of vintage fright photoplays”, produces elegant, beautifully colored digital art based on the monsters of the silent and early talkie eras. Subjects include Chaney’s Phantom of the Opera, the tongue-wagging devil from Haxan, King Kong, and robots from Metropolis and The Phantom Creeps

Compare 4gottenlore’s art to its inspiration, an original poster from the 1931 Frankenstein, to fully appreciate the quality of his interpretations.

You’ll enjoy 4gottenlore’s creations, on display at his DeviantArt page.

The monster in the top-most illustration looks disconcertingly like comedian Jack Carter.
