Fun new work from artist Alexey Kondakov up on My Modern Met.
Like Kondakov’s past work, the Napoli Project seamlessly combines painted figures with contemporary surroundings to create eye-catching juxtapositions. With an eye for composition and a masterly knowledge of photo manipulation, Kondakov is able to produce well-balanced and well-blended images that warrant a second glance. Though the antiquated figures are rendered in oil paint, they do not obviously stand out against the real-life backdrops. Likewise, the present-day urban settings offer an unexpectedly fitting foundation for each painted person. Beautiful Bouguereau and Waterhouse muses and a formal Hans Holbein portrait are just a few of the classical characters that Kondakov re-contextualizes in his stunning series.
