Sean Molloy – Revamped Classic Art

Classic and contemporary!

I love how the Dublin based artist Sean Molloy revamps traditional paintings and vintage photos giving them a contemporary touch. The artist wants to investigate the relevance of classic painting in a digitally-mediated world.

On every art piece there is a contraposition between the classic portrait or landscape style, and layers of digital elements inspired by a variety of sources, as image manipulation software, glitch art, etc.

Everything is done using a traditional painting technique, and the final result is balanced even if the inspirational elements are so different. Love it!
