Russian artist Alexey Morosov creates sculptures, paintings and drawings combining the influence of famous masterpieces by sculptors of Ancient Greece and Rome with the contemporary cultural experience of modern man. His recent solo exhibition at the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg was titled Antologia and included over 48 of Morosov’s works. From the museum’s press release:

The heroes that are marked by inspired beauty and imposing harmony seem to be protecting themselves from the threat of invisible aggressive force in the most part of presented works. The high skill of execution, natural combination of tradition and innovation, canonical and spontaneous helps Aleksey Morozov to discover the new possibilities of plastic language of the Antique Art and to emphasize the eternal significance of its humanistic ideals.

The contrast of these Hellenic nymphs on their super-rugged segways cracks me up. You can see more of Morosov’s work on his website.
