The challenge was

They ain’t broken, but we’re gonna fix ’em anyway

Get a piece of that masterpiece

Classics are revered. Classics are timeless. Classics are meant to be completely reinterpreted by your brilliant creative mind. But how exactly? Look at the most memorable and iconic works of the past and draw inspiration from them, while also referencing counter culture to inform what you might reshape visually to make them modern. Is it as simple as a bit of graffiti mixed with Whistler? Or maybe it’s time to turn the Renaissance into a Renai-seance? Maybe Mona Lisa needs some accessorizing? Or conversely, you could even take that wonderful weirdo Warhol down a few notches! However you do it, look to redefine classic works of art, design, and popular culture, and breathe some contemporary life into them.
