Not everyone is into classical paintings by renaissance artists, so sometimes the best way to garner some interest is to add a modernized twist as Billy Norrby has done here.

Billy Norrby has created paintings with a classical aesthetic that's apparent in style and colors; however, he adds his own personal touch. Norrby has incorporated an anarchist/protest theme to each of his works, so instead of a heroic knight on the horse, you get a cop wearing riot gear. Instead of an angel flying down, there's a gas mask-wearing protester. The artworks are a wonderful blend of the classic and the modern, and Norrby has executed this concept brilliantly in these pieces. These will definitely have you appreciating the renaissance style of art more.
