Oversized And Colorful Birds Painted On Vintage Photographs By Anja Wulfing

Anja Wülfing has a knack for combining the antiquated with the absurd, painting colorful creatures on turn-of-the-century photos. ‘Sometimes it’s a detail on the photograph, like a haircut, or a facial expression that reminds me of a specific animal.’ says the German painter and graphic designer. Wülfing began to introduce these ‘visitors’, as she calls them, nearly three years ago after finding a vintage portrait of a couple inside an old frame she bought on eBay. ‘I added over-sized birds in between the photographed people and was surprised at how oddly natural it looked, I like the combination of the old and the humorous, the fact, the fiction, and the little feeling of discomfort.’
