In bygone eras, portraits were created to capture a person as they were. Recently, Japanese American artistic duo Kozyndan presented a series of portraits that were a bit akward at Narwhal Art Projects in Toronto, Canada.

The idea for the show came from an old photo album found at a Venice thrift shop which inspired Kozyndan to create potential 'lost photographs.'

The final result is fun and amusing!

Implications - This twisted artwork takes traditional designs and alters them to create something new. This tactic is perfect for the contemporary business looking to innovate their designs and spin a profit. Many consumers are not looking for an entirely new commodity, but simply a revamped version of previous material.
