People From Classic Paintings Inserted Into Modern City Life (Part 2)

Alexey Kondakov, the Ukrainian artist whom we covered before, is back with new images of figures from classical paintings photoshopped into modern locations. The ongoing series, titled The Daily Life Of Gods, features images such as William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s Nymphs and Satyr, or Cesar van Everdingen’s Bacchus.

In fact, the paintings of Cesar van Everdingen are what first inspired Kondakov to start creating. “I realized that the heroes of these masterpieces were simply looking to spend quality time [together], like us,” reports Modern Met. Many of the pieces are set in Kiev; if you’re from Kiev, do you recognize any?

What a phenomenal concept! Superb execution, transposing classics over the 'modern' today. Too bad it's just too short. The lighting of the scene, the subject... WELL DONE!!!

Certainly thought provoking. Truly gives pause. This is the first time I've seen this type of presentation. Unique.

I'm a Christian (conservative Presbyterian) and I think they're very thought provoking - in a good way! Christ lives amongst the poor...
