All of us have found hope in Disney at one point or another in our lives. Many artists use Disney characters as their inexhaustible source of inspiration. They love to reimagine them and create something amazing out of them. Jirka Väätäinen, a Finnish artist, is also one of them. He introduced a series titled “Real Life Disney” in which he used a combination of digital painting and photo manipulation to paint iconic Disney characters as people in real life.
“Since I grew up with a lot of these characters, the sense of nostalgia made it such a fascinating and a fun personal project,” said Jirka about the project.
