More about the art, and how it is crafted:
Modernizing the Masters is a growing collection of art works created by artist Chris Hawks. The paintings are hand drawn and hand painted from scratch, with a method called "The Prestige Technique". The iconic image of a classical masterpiece is modernized with a parody reimagining of famous icons from pop culture. The series started in 2013 with the Vitruvian X Man, and has been steadily growing into the Mona Mystique, Birth of Cthulhu, etc... It is an evolution of old ideas, transformed into new masterpieces for our times.
