In the modern world and its endless pursuit of trends, we often forget about classical art. But the artist Alexey Kondakov decided to combine both classics and modernity - he moves the characters of famous paintings into everyday settings that are familiar to us. He is known for his project "The History of Art in Contemporary Life". Let's take a look at some of the artist's latest works!

As part of his project "The History of Art in Modern Life", artist Alexey Kondakov takes characters and elements from classical paintings and seamlessly integrates them into modern scenes. The result is a curious juxtaposition of past and present that reflects changes in the world and art. Alexey's works also often include humor and irony. According to the artist, humor is “a means that helps us perceive reality in a funny and light-hearted manner.”
