Artist Alexey Kondakov Imagines Figures from Classical Paintings as Part of Contemporary Life

art-1

For his ongoing series “Art History in Contemporary Life,” Ukrainian artist Alexey Kondakov takes scenes and figures lifted from classical paintings and drops them into modern-day life. Bouguereau’s Song of the Angels appears to take place on an empty subway car while a pair of men from Holbein’s famous The Ambassadors are transported to the table of a seedy bar. Much like Etienne Lavie’s billboard series and Julien de Casabianca’s recent Outings Project, the series creates an interesting and playful new context for artworks usually only encountered in museums and art history books. You can see more over on Facebook. (via Supersonic)

It's one of mine that's been around for the longest and is all about, well, ponies you'll find on the moors of Devon.
The other surviving uk breeds are also mostly covered so there's a page for New Forest Ponies, Welsh Cob, Highland and others.
There's also info about stables, riding schools and pony trekking holidays in Devon, if you're interested :)
