If Figures From Classical Paintings Lived In The Modern Day

How would the gods and characters of antiquity portrayed in classical paintings look if they appeared alongside us in the modern world? Alexey Kondakov, an artist based in Kiev, Ukraine, created a series of Photoshopped images that answer this question. His 2 Reality series puts classical paintings into settings we experience every day, be it the metro, the sketchy highway underpass, or the local lunch joint.

It’s interesting to consider how our impressions of these gods change given their new context. They may seem elegant or royal in a painting in a museum, but when superimposed into recognizable parts of modern life, some of them seem begin to seem like obnoxiously drunken revelers.
