A classic of the genre is taking iconic figures of yesteryear and updating them in today's fashion. We had a previous post that did just that, taking icons of art history and making them into hipsters. Now we are back with a similar concept, this time from UntitledSave, an artist based in Porto, Portugal.
The influencers of previous times became famous for their talents and iconic works, as well as the way they presented themselves. Perhaps we could go back to those days? In the meantime, let us present those old legends as if they were the 'heroes' of today; you gotta admit, they do look cool!
The artist behind UntitledSave is Tiago, an industrial/product designer. Recently, he found himself between jobs, and being always motivated to expand his skills and artistic experience, he decided to try his hand at Photoshop. The results are more than impressive!
"Because of my free time and also because art is a huge part of my life I started to developed my skills even further on Photoshop and started to share my work on my page," Tiago told Bored Panda. "I live in Porto, Portugal and so my inspiration comes a lot from my city and its surroundings."
Tiago aims for quality over quantity, which is why, he explains, there are so far only a small list of artists represented. " I choose the ones I feel more connected to, but also I need to check if the photos have quality for the work, so that's why I have a small list," he told us.
Also Portuguese artists, singers, painters, filmmakers are a inspiration. Before I started the page I used to like surrealism, although now I'm more into classic painting."
Right now, Tiago is just starting out and has been surprised by the hugely positive reaction to his work. While he doesn't plan on starting a Patreon just yet, he would love to continue to expand his portfolio and bring many more icons into the 21st century.
