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. Stats for Anarchist Classical Paintings Trending: Older & Mild
