The Canvas Project is an art project created by Brazilian artist Gabriel Nardelli Araújo. The 28-year-old 'frees' well-known characters from classical paintings and puts them in the modern-day settings with the help of Photoshop. "The process is entirely digital, my works of art do not exist, at least so far, in physical form. It is done in Photoshop based on photos of places I visited and pictures that I had access to. Pictures of the famous paintings are made available online by the museums themselves in high-resolution files, which has greatly helped in the final quality of the digital artworks," he explained in an interview.

At first, this project was just an outlet for Gabriel, that let him create surreal images, but over time its importance changed. "I have been perceiving montages as new forms of appropriation of space and classical art. I feel like I leave an immaterial mark on that place. People who have had contact with my creative ideas and later visit the space or see the original famous artworks can have a new vision about them."
