Anna Michell’s ‘Classic Rock’ series blends rocker style and classical sculpture. Each piece channels an iconic Greco-Roman sculpture.

Unfortunately, there are only four poses in Anna Michell’s ‘Classic Rock’ series. I wouldn’t mind an entire gallery full of them! Check out some other subversions of classic history bellow.

Implications - In today's tabloid-obsessed culture, musicians and celebrities are the modern equivalent to the gods and goddesses of ancient Rome and Greece. Photographers and visual artists are using this juxtaposition to appeal to fans and make a social statement. To leverage this phenomenon, creatives should look to reinterpret classic artwork in a cutting-edge way using modern iconography and digital art.
