Alan MacDonald's paintings blend the subject and style of the European Renaissance masters with modern day consumerism and pop culture. Consequently, you will see many of the subjects of his paintings drinking popular beverages, eating junk food, riding on scooters, etc.

MacDonald also pairs his old Europe characters with other out of place items such as retro fantasy box carts that look like they may have come from a century ago. Genial!

Implications - Also of note is MacDonald's ability to execute these renaissance-style paintings with such fidelity to the original artworks. He flawlessly emulates the faded paints and lighting style of old masters in each piece.
