When I first found Ukranian artist Alexey Kondakov’s art on Pinterest a couple years back I went crazy realising that there were no articles written on him at all. Who was this guy photoshopping classical art subjects into contemporary environments?
Now Alexey Kondakov is a lot more recognised and I just love his ongoing series ‘Art history in contemporary life’ and ‘The daily life of gods’. Scenes we usually only see in history books or museums are now taking place on the subway! It obviously doesn’t take a lot to blow my mind – blurring the lines between academic art and postmodernism basically gets you there.
