Heather Theurer is an incredibly talented artist who decided one day that she wanted to transform Disney characters into pieces of fine art. She marketed her work at Comic-Con and a Disney marketing executive was so impressed that she asked her to transform the Disney characters in oil paintings!
Honestly, Heather’s paintings look like they belong in a museum they are so amazing! Get ready to go on a nostalgic journey through all of the classic Disney characters, each one of them looking better than ever as an oil painting!
1.) Cinderella, Cinderella (1950)
Cinderella looks more magical than ever thanks to this glorious oil painting reimagination. We love how Heather has captured the birds so well with one perched on her finger. She looks exactly how we would imagine her in real life!
2.) Mr. Toad, The Wind in the Willows (1949)
I love Mr. Toad and he looks mighty fine as an oil painting! He would be the envy of Toad Hall with this outfit, he definitely scrubs up well.
3.) Dumbo, Dumbo (1941)
This picture is so touching, the mirroring of the 1940s classic with a modern day reimagined look is just perfect! Definitely, need to watch Dumbo again…
4.) Alice, Alice in Wonderland (1951)
This is so awesome! From Alice’s expression to the amazing depiction of the mad hatter, I NEED this picture framed in my house.
5.) Ariel, The Little Mermaid (1989)
Ariel has never looked so majestic. She looks like a QUEEN and really is exactly how I would have imagined her.
6.) Peter Pan and Wendy, Peter Pan (1953)
This portrayal of Peter Pan and Wendy is so charming and innocent I can’t deal with it! Love how Tinkerbell is sat on the windowsill. I think THIS is my favourite.
7.) Belle, Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Belle looks so amazing as an oil painting as if she has a story she is dying to tell. Heather certainly is an incredibly talented artist.
8.) Mulan, Mulan (1998)
Mulan looks BADASS as an oil painting. We love how she is portrayed in this piece of work with the cherry blossoms and the awesome sword. Now, THIS one is my favourite. (I’ll say that about every one of these).
9.) Lilo and Stitch, Lilo & Stitch (2002)
This is the cutest thing EVER. Seeing Lilo & Stitch together like this is just the cutest and brings it all to life.
10.) Tiana, The Princess and the Frog (2009)
Tiana looks awesome in this oil painting. She looks so majestic and old school with her beautiful outfit. Another amazing job from Heather!
11.) Merida, Brave (2012)
Merida looks like she just come straight out of the Hunger Games in this painting and to be honest, I’m loving it!
12.) Rapunzel, Tangled (2010)
Rapunzel looks amazing in this reimagining. Her hair is definitely on point, she comes across as almost otherworldly. Definitely, need to watch Tangled again tonight…
13.) Elsa and Anna, Frozen (2013)
The childhood innocent of Elsa and Anna is perfectly captured in this painting. It recreates the magic of the film whilst bringing it into the real world!
Well, I don’t know about you but I’m about to go and re-watch every signal Disney movie ever now. These paintings make us wish that all of these amazing Disney characters really did exist in real life. Some dreams don’t always come true though…
