Artist Replicates Famous Paintings In The Most Unusual And Abandoned Places

The artist Julio Anaya Cabanding from Malaga, Spain, replicates the most famous paintings of all time in public places and gives the impression that they are framed. For his beautiful paintings, he chooses unusual surroundings such as walls decorated with street art graffiti, facades of dilapidated, abandoned buildings, or stone slabs by the sea.

He loves to create a conflict and is fascinated by the contract between classical art and the surrounding urban decay that you could never relate to. In this way, the artist emancipates himself from the cold exhibition halls of museums.

“These places are inhospitable, decadent, and inadequate to receive such beautiful art,” the artist told Bored Panda.

He begins each of his unique artworks by sketching his replica in aerosol and then meticulously completes the details with acrylic paint. His works are always done in peripheral, or difficult to reach abandoned places. His works of art take the viewer to a new dimension, leaving them with a breathtaking copy of the original work.

What a fun idea, they look great. Such a lot of work in them.

This really brings the graffiti-ed walls and abandoned houses to life. They are so beautiful and he makes them using his paints in a plastic box, without an easel, and in remote areas unlike the original painters!

Good point - they would be impressive even if done in a studio, but even more so 'en plein air' (sp?).

Very cool. This is a good way to class up urban areas!

Yes, both to class up urban areas and to bring culture and art closer to people, it's a great idea. And he's really talented.
