Heroes of Classical Paintings Transported To The Streets Of Modern Kiev

Art director Alexey Kondakov transported Gods of the Renaissance paintings to the streets of modern Kiev.Transposed as they are, they obtain new meaning through our filter of adventures in city life. That is, their revelry reeks of cheap drink and annoys us on public transport – why can’t those nymphs behave – and their grief is the sadness of the modern man, born from poor employment and late workers.

Kondakov currently works as an art director for Natus Vincere, an e-sports club. He came up with the idea for the project in a museum. While there, he observed that people in classical projects were entertaining just the same as modern people are.
