The incredibly talented Cuban-American artist Cesar Santos has created a series of creatively re-imagined historic paintings. The 'Syncretism' series of paintings look like they have been taken directly out of a museum, aside from the clever spin that Santos has instilled on them.

Taking classic paintings like 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' and remaking them in his own style takes a huge amount of skill. It can be very intimating to cover artists like Vermeer, Picasso, Pollack and Da Vinci, but Santos does a wonderful job.

As Cesar Santos explains, "My tools are imagination and technique; they are the essence and the basis of my work." Such a basic explanation of his artwork just further highlights his level of artistry.
