Sydney Cash revamps historical paintings in 'Remastered Portraits,' his latest series of illustrated works. Whether depicting the works of Albrecht Durer, Grant Wood or Vincent Van Gogh, the artist creates distorted versions of famed art pieces.

His canvases are each accented with linear elements that embody a surreal aesthetic. The pieces feature textured imagery and are created using an oil paint medium. The contemporary art pieces are inspired by iconic and historical paintings but are personalized to illustrate the signature aesthetic of artist Sydney Cash.

Cash creates works that are familiar yet modernized. His creations educate their viewer of art history and its most influential pieces. While doing that, the pieces are also reflective of contemporary design ideals.
