What if classical masterpieces stepped into the 21st century? (amazing portraits)

Sacrilege or art?

Ukrainian artist Alexey Kondakov interpolates classic portraits to modern-world environments with striking results. His ongoing project is part of a series, titled “The Daily Life of Gods”, and it has brought Cesar van Everdingen’s Bacchus, Caravaggio’s David and Goliath and William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s Nymphs and Satyr to dreary modern-day environments, such as metro trains, subways, liquor stores, etc.
