Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Painted As The Renaissance Painters They Were Named After

New York-based New Zealand Artist Owen Dippie has painted a mural of four Renaissance Artists, Leonardo, Raphael, Michaelangelo and Donatello, as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Painted on a wall running along a railway track in Brooklyn, Dippie has taken the four Renaissance men and given them masks as worn by the Ninja Turtles who were named after them.

A fan of Renaissance art and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Owen’s latest creation is also a matter of “respect.”

“I am a child of popular culture and am inspired by my heroes,” said Owen. “By involving them in my art I pay my utmost respect to them in the best way I know how.”

You can see other examples of Owen’s work by following the links below.

This is an old concept. He can't say now that it's his own idea. You can find this on websites since 2009. Anyway I liked the concept when I saw it for the first time.

I think it's more about the art, nothing is really truly original concept anymore...
