Anna Michell Channels Classic Sculptures With Rockstar Style

 - May 17, 2009   Updated: Mar 29 2011

Implications - In today's tabloid-obsessed culture, musicians and celebrities are the modern equivalent to the gods and goddesses of ancient Rome and Greece. Photographers and visual artists are using this juxtaposition to appeal to fans and make a social statement. To leverage this phenomenon, creatives should look to reinterpret classic artwork in a cutting-edge way using modern iconography and digital art.
