In his brilliant collage series entitled Art Pop Classic, artist Marco Battaglini brings classical paintings into the 21st century. Art critic Naiara Herrera writes: “Without a doubt, the work of Marco Battaglini (born Verona, Italy, 1969) echoes the anxiety inherent in Western society during the 21st century. This artist’s work confronts us with an esthetic shock, a style charged with eclecticism and a touch of humor that brings a smile to the spectator’s face while begging questions about the dogma that underlies current artistic and social scenes. Throughout his artistic career, Battaglini has maintained a complex working-concept of reality, approaching it from its basis in perception and coming into close proximity with the multidimensionality of being; his purpose has been to expose the contradictions intrinsic to human existence while demonstrating the power of imagination through his view of the reality that surrounds us – a reality that sometimes insists on playing tricks on our perceptions.” You can read Herrera’s full analysis of Battaglini’s series — and see Art Pop Classic in its entirety — by visiting And for more from the artist visit I’ve also attached animator Rino Stefano Tagliafierro’s stunning video below in which he brings classical paintings to life using his sophisticated animation technique.
