Dating back to nearly a year ago, we’ve been talking about artist Matthew Therrien’s “Final Girls & Cinema Survivors” art series, which sees the Canadian artist mash together horror’s most iconic final girls and the villains they were tough enough to survive. Therrien’s beautiful paintings, lush with color, literally put the villains and the final girls side-by-side, which makes for striking art pieces that highlight the beauty, brains and badassery of our favorite horror heroines.
Up to this point, we’ve shown off 9 pieces from the series including tributes to iconic survivors such as Laurie Strode, Nancy Thompson and Ellen Ripley, but we wanted to do an update now that a handful of new pieces have been added to the series. Therrien is now up to piece number 14 in the “Final Girls & Cinema Survivors” series, with the latest additions including Jess Bradford from Black Christmas, Stevie Wayne from The Fog, Lila Crane from Psycho, Trish Jarvis from Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter and even, though he’s obviously not a female, Mike from Phantasm.
