Classic art seems to be a bit forgotten nowadays, after the discovery of photoshop and other softwares, art seems to be more on the computer than in a canvas. For my surprise, Fábio introduced me this recent project that try to recreate some classic paintings on the human body, the results are quite exquisite and beautiful.
If you want know more about this project, please access the official website.
Museum Anatomy is a collection of documentary photographs of works from museums around the world that have been recreated onto the human body. The artwork goes through a significant process until reaching the final outcome, a photograph of Chadwick, sometimes unrecognizable as a human form, with an elaborate, detailed painting covering a portion of his body. The recreated paintings of these historic portraits recapture the subjects in their own moment in history. The resulting photographs reveal a unification of art combining antiquity, history and technology in a contemporary context. (Chadwick & Spector Website)
