Fascinating series of painting/photo work by Ukrainian artist Alexey Kondakov shows classical style painted figures in mundane contemporary settings. Riding a city bus, attending a rave, hanging out on the street, we see figures that are normally in 16th century settings, transported into 21st century settings.

Kondakov shows us strange juxtapositions that are seamlessly executed, transporting figures normally in 16th century paintings into contemporary settings.
