THEN AND NOW: This Dutch artist photoshops celebrities meeting their younger selves

Dutch artist Ard Gelinck has been posting photo edits online for about 10 years but told Insider he wanted to "challenge" himself by creating a series of celebrity "Then and Now" comparisons.

"The ideas suddenly came up and the celebrities that I choose are often random. Sometimes an extra when I know when it is someone's birthday, for example," he told Insider.

Showing some spellbinding Photoshopping skills, Gelinck said he spends between one and four hours editing each side-by-side, which varies depending on the color, lighting, tones, and scale of each individual image. 

But the artist masterfully merges the two before-and-after comparisons to look as if each celebrity is meeting their younger self for the first time.

And he's even got the tick of approval from the sources of inspiration themselves. 

Gelinck said he's been flattered to see Madonna, Ricky Gervais, Sylvester Stallone,Michael Douglas, and Lionel Richie, to name a few, reshare his work via their own Instagrams.

While the Dutch artist isn't interested in exhibiting or profiting from his images, he said he is "enjoying that I can create something that other people like.

"It's nice to see that you can entertain people and show something that makes them laugh and make them think."
