Have you ever thought how would those people from classical paintings look if they suddenly started living amongst us? No? We neither! But now we don’t have to because it was already done by Ukrainian artist Alexey Kondakov who used Photoshop to bring some of them into modern-day world.

The ongoing series (previously covered here and here), titled "The Daily Life Of Gods", is mostly set in Kiev and you can see the figures created by different authors many years ago using public transport, sitting at bars, napping in public places, eating at local lunch joints, or selling flowers. These new settings show them in a completely different color so scroll down to witness it for yourself!

They almost look real. If I hadn't knew what was coming, it could have tricked my eyes and believe its real.

Oh, love is blind ("that's why people close their eyes when they kiss," children's words of wisdom).

I believe that's Diogenes searching for an honest man. But he's done better...he's found some loyal companions!

Germany. Looks like that place Central Park that they call "beach club" or "beach bar" at the hipster area Sternschanze in Hamburg (seems like Germans name places with sand on the ground "beach"). Picture depicts the best part of this place which basically corresponds to massive litter box: outside.

I enjoyed all of these but I think the original art's source deserves to be cited: it plays the biggest part in the success of the effect.
