Classic paintings re-imagined with a modern twist
French artist Blase has taken the Parisian flea markets by storm, giving traditional renaissance art a new lease of life. As his nickname Blaspheme may suggest, his contemporary art channels serious issues in a humourous fashion shining current events in a new light.
Filled with subversive details and references to pop culture Blase doesn’t shy away from taboo subjects and frequently takes inspiration from inflammatory slogans. Notably “Charlie Hebdo” and “Make American Great Again”. The refreshing flare of his work forces you to stop, think and reflect on the world we live in today.
