Artist Creates Incredible Pictures Of Celebrities Posing With Their Younger SelvesArd Gelinck/Instagram

A Dutch graphic designer is spending his free time creating pictures of celebrities posing with their younger selves, and the results are incredible. 

Social media has been packed to the brim with throwback photos recently, as people share how they looked at the beginning of the decade versus how they look now we’re nearing the end – but artist Ard Gelinck has been ahead of the game for some time.

The graphic designer has a whole Instagram page dedicated to his creations, which show A-listers such as Keanu Reeves, Kim Kardashian and the cast posing alongside younger versions of themselves. Gelinck uses Photoshop to create the images, which are perfectly edited to make the comparisons appear flawless.

Luckily for Gelinck, celebrities have much of their life documented through photographs, meaning the artist can compare fresh-faced and innocent stars with the wise old-timers they’ve grown in to.

The following image series, for example, shows a Growing Pains-era Leonardo DiCaprio embracing his Oscar-winning, environment-saving current self.

Gelinck spoke to UNILAD about his hobby, explaining he has been posting photos online for about 10 years, though he has been creative since he was a child.

He commented:

I often challenge myself to create a certain series of images, including the ‘then and now’ series that you see a lot now.

The ideas come up and the celebrities that I choose are often random.

The Dutch artist also pays tribute to celebrities who are no longer around, for example the beloved Robin Williams.
