alexey kondakov’s seamless blend of two different eras
the artist’s intricate blend of two vastly different time periods almost never fails to leave the viewer perplexed. he carefully photoshops figures from classical paintings by william-adolph bouguereau, arthur hacker, herbert james draper — to name a few — onto familiar settings made of concrete cities, techno beats, and endless consumer goods. this hybrid composition ultimately gives a whole new meaning to a reality we know all too well.
