Blog of the Day: Ancient Characters in Modern Kiev

Ukrainian designer transfers antique gods to the city’s streets, cafes and public transport.

Designer Alexey Kondakov posts collages on his Facebook page. His work bridges characters from classic paintings to modern Kiev. The artist says he got an idea when saw a print of Caesar van Everdingen’s painting, “Nymphs Offering the Young Bacchus Wine, Fruit and Flowers.” Kondakov imagined how different the painting would feel if the characters were transferred into today’s life.
