Blade Runner Made of 12,597 Watercolor Paintings

Anders Ramsell, an artist from Sweden, made 12,597 watercolor paintings to set up a 35-minute “paraphrasing” of Ridley Scott’s legendary film Blade Runner.

Anders Ramsell, an artist from Sweden, made 12,597 watercolor paintings to set up a 35-minute “paraphrasing” of Ridley Scott’s legendary film Blade Runner. The new version is called Blade Runner – The Aquarelle Edition and the artist states that it took him a better part of a year to complete.

Please note that this is rather a tribute and Ramsell has altered sections in his short film. “Blade Runner – The Aquarelle Edition” follows the original movies storyline but I have taken the liberty to change a lot of things,” Ramsell states. “It was never my intent to make an exact version of the movie, that would fill no purpose. Instead, I wanted to create something different and never before seen.”

The video consists of exactly 12,597 handmade aquarelle watercolor paintings. “I saw an opportunity to dive deeper; enhance its colours and feelings from a new angle,” Ramsell told Yahoo. “And also to combine the old technic that is water and pigment with the future that is Blade Runner.”

“This is as analog as it gets — water, pigment, paper and brush. That’s it!” Ramsell added. “This one is dedicated to everybody with any kind of heart. Enjoy!”
