Alexia Sinclair combines the romanticism of the Renaissance with a modern, naughty flare in her latest series Rococo. The Australian photographer and artist compiles a visually rich and stunning collection featuring extravagant backdrops made of real flora and frivolous dresses and hairpieces that harkens back to the gilded era of Marie Antoinette.

Nowadays, it’s no secret that every face and body gracing the front covers of magazines have been treated with Photoshop and Lauren Wade wanted to show what famous works of art would look like had they been treated with the same digital magic.
Marco Battaglini makes classical art relatable to common folks like us by adding modern tidbits in a mashup of Renaissance paintings meets pop art.
