How would the Gods, Duchess, angels, cherubins and common folks from classical paintings stand out when placed in a modern day setting? Kiev, Ukraine based artist, Alexey Kondakov have the perfect idea and talent by placing these two different eras into one perfect picture. His reality series cuts people from these classical paintings and blend them into our current reality.
It’s an interesting idea pulling the past right into what is now and viewing it in different context. Angels singing on the metro, gods posing in a dark underpass, cherubins riding the bus provides a different impression that is totally far from the elegance and royalty depicted in the antiquities. The longer you look the more it becomes a picture of some random teenagers and singles having some fun.
