Russia-born artist Maxim Ksuta has given life to a collection of portraits called Art in Art. Ksuta used hundreds of smaller images of classic pictures and paintings to create a larger portrait. The faces in the collection were modeled after family and friends of the artist. The artwork manages to personalize all of these classic portraits and create something that is meaningful to the artist alone. These amazingly thoughtful pictures are a great way to memorialize loved ones and classic paintings all in one.
Collage art has never looked better than with Maxim Ksuta's collection of characterizations. Oftentimes, the best art is created when there is a personal connection, and Ksuta's connection to his work is definitely evident in these pieces.
