brazilian artist gabriel nardelli araujo combines classic art with modern life by adding unusual elements to paintings. the artist’s spin-off series ‘the burger friday’ is part of ‘the canvas project’, a collection of collages with unexpected storylines.

‘the series started with focusing on a very recurrent subject in art history, the beheading of st john the baptist,’ explains araujo. ‘the idea was to change the meaning and the perception of the scene by only modifying one of its elements.’

just by changing one element of the scene, its meaning is completely changed

 

 

the hamburgers are 3D models rendered using v-ray in 3ds max. the artist claims that this approach gives him more freedom to explore different compositions before making the decision for the final image. also, makes the lighting and color match a lot easier. the rendered hamburger and the original painting are later merged together using photoshop.

  • Well, at least they painted the buns to look like the styrofoam bread the chains serve.
