Back To The Future


The series “Art History in Contemporary Life” by Ukrainian artist Alexey Kandakov is a superb mashup of figures from classical paintings and scenes from ordinary life.  There is a marvelous feeling of continuity as figures normally only seen in museums and art history books appear as suddenly familiar figures, riding the subway, selling fruit at the market, passing out drunk outside of a convenience store, and in all of the other scenes of life so intimately familiar to modern-day urban dwellers.
