A Gallery of The Big Lebowski as Fine Art

Many regard the Coen Brothers’ The Big Lebowski as a piece of cinematic art, and for good reason. It’s one of the better black comedies in existence and….ahhh, who am I kidding? Confession time, I’m not as huge of a fan of this film as most others are. Perhaps I saw it too long ago, but I didn’t really understand the appeal, and I’ll have to revisit it again to see if I get anything else out of it. Yes, yes, now yell at me because my opinion differs from yours.

But while you’re formulating your rebuttal, check out artist Joe Forkan’s series of paintings that turn The Big Lebowski into classic art. He took various scenes from the movie, and painted them in the style of historic paintings of old. 

Check out the full series below and no, I do not believe they’re for sale. Pretty to look at though.

So, why do you love Lebowski and I’m a big stupid idiot cause I don’t?

  1. shut the fuck up donny!

    just watch the movie again and again and again…….
    it gets better every time. it´s a masterpiece!
    no other movie has so many cool characters.

    i just bought the bluray so my old scratched dvd can rest in peace now.

    and it´s the best movie to watch with some buddys with a lot of booze (or you know different stuff)

  2. I loved Lebowski mainly because I’ve always been a fan of the detective novels of the 30’s and 40’s by authors such as Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon) and Raymond Chandler (The Big Sleep, The Long Goodbye) and if you really watch The Big Lebowski, that’s all the movie is. It’s one of those stories taking place in L.A. with the main character being a stoner slacker instead of a hard bitten detective, and I loved it for that. Well, that and the fact that they swear so damn much it immediately attached itself to my pleasure centers of my adolescent brain when it first came out.

  3. The first time I watched this movie was on a hungover morning alone in my room and i thought it was pure crap. The second time i watched with my friends while drinking and smoking, and i though it was the best movie ever!!!
