Things can get pretty interesting when you mash the classic and the modern. Remember one of our previous posts where Snapchat captions were added to classical paintings? That was hilarious! It definitely gave art history a new, funny twist.
Now allow us to introduce you to the work of Ukrainian artist Alexey Kondakov. This creative had the idea of getting characters from classical works of art and then putting them in modern settings, mostly in Kiev, the capital city of his home country.
How did he do it? Well with the power of Photoshop, of course!
Kondakov’s series, which he calls “The Daily Life of Gods”, gives us a glimpse of what it looks like when characters from iconic paintings live in the present day.
We see them doing mundane tasks such as going to the beach, selling flowers, enjoying a train ride, and many more. People have been praising Kondakov’s fascinating work and he even got featured by websites such as Bored Panda for it.
Check out more of his stuff below:

32 Quirky Yet Thought-Provoking Drawings By Artist Nacho Diaz
This guy is good at finding humor in everyday objects.
What sets apart great art from terrible art? It could be many things but personally, I think what makes good artwork stand out is its ability to communicate to its intended audience. Whether it is a well-detailed painting or a simple comic strip, effective art can convey a message and even spark an emotion from its beholder.
This is exactly the reason why I became an instant fan of Nacho Diaz, an artist whose work we will showcase below. Based in Spain, Diaz has been making waves online mostly because of his funny illustrations.
In a Bored Panda feature, this talented guy has been described as someone who “enjoys putting everyday things into bizarre situations” thus, “perfectly creating humorous double entendres.”
You’ll have to see his stuff to understand what that means. But trust us on this – you’ll never see a broccoli, a teabag, or a pinata the same way again once you get to experience Diaz’ art....
Couple Replicates Bookshelf Design They Saw Online, Gets Blown Away With The Result
There is really nothing impossible when it comes to patience and creativity.
Like most of us, Jessica and Sinclair Breen have been interested in pictures posted on Pinterest. Both got easily hooked by the social media’s inspiring photos that cover almost everything from design and fashion, to technology and photography. Apparently though, the couple decided to turn the inspiration to action.
Basically, the two found a picture of a bookshelf online. When Jessica showed it to Sinclair, the latter “almost had a heart attack.” This is where everything started. The couple knew that they must give it a try.
After measuring the wall space, Jessica took the inspiring picture with her and showed it to a graphic arts teacher who worked at the same school as hers. With his help, they immediately understood what size panels to order and use. They spent around $900 just to get everything into place.
After seeing a picture of a bookshelf on Pinterest, Jessica and Sinclair decided to build one themselves.

We’ve reached the next level of human vanity.
