Loren Kantor’s Stark Woodcuts of Legendary Actors and Film Classics

A black-and-white homage to classic cinema.

As a lover of Lynd Ward’s vintage woodcuts, I was instantly enamored with Hollywood-based writer, artist, and cinema enthusiast Loren Kantor‘s striking woodcuts and linocuts inspired by her favorite classic films and actors.

Humphrey Bogart
Lauren Bacall
James Cagney
Marlon Brando
David Lynch
Buster Keaton
Steve Buscemi
Peter Lorre
Woody Allen’s Manhattan (1979)
William Friedkin’s The French Connection (1971)
Safety Last! starring Harold Lloyd (1923)

All of Kantor’s woodcuts are available as prints — shoot him an email for more information.
