Leonardo Art
Contest Directions: Artists around the world celebrate the 557th birthday of Lenoardo Da Vinci today. Leonardo was not only artist but also a great scientist, inventor and mathematician of his times. Some scientists say that Da Vinci was "Einstein of Renaissance".
To celebrate the 557th birthday of Leonadro Da Vinci, photoshop his works any way you wish. Some examples are: modernize his paintings by including modern objects, sceneries, or people; merge his paintings with movie posters (see example ) ; merge parts of Da Vinci's paintings with other famous paintings; commercialize his works by turning them into advertisements for modern products; turn them into billboards, etc. These are just some ideas. Here's another good example. You are welcome to use Da Vinci's frescos and numerous sketches (e.g. Vitruvian man) in addition to paintings.

  • Barack Obama as Mona Lisa

    Barack Obama as Mona Lisa
        • Great work, on Obama, but the background (the Capitol, etc) is what sells this image for me. Great work
        • Thanks all....I was trying to make it look odd like the Mona Lisa.
        • (the exposed ear sells it for me)

          Congrats AZ.
        • It's not a picture I would hang in my house but I love the blend job here, nice work AZR!
  • Leonardo Da Vinci Biker

    Leonardo Da Vinci Biker
        • He neeeds a cigaret that's coming out of the drawing and then the smoke should vorm the last supper...Good chop
        • rolling on the floor with laughter, he's a natural biker!
          LOVE the drawing you added to this masterpiece.

          He kinda reminds me ZZtop folks too
        • Congrats MrMo He does look like ZZ Top, just hope he stays away from the TV dinners.
  • Osama Bin Kaden Hiding in Mona Lisa Painting

    Osama Bin Kaden Hiding in Mona Lisa Painting
        • I had a feeling he'd be in there for some reason.
        • I was talking about Osama.
          Great edit. It's an original use of American Gothic. I like it. Makes for a strange surrealistic image. The handcuffs are a good idea also.

        • Thanks. I added a cigaret for dramatic effect.
        • This is one of my favorite of the entries for this contest. I like how you took American Gothic to another level.

        • Excellent chop & you're getting high marks from me, but bin ladens face kinda spoils the chop. His face is too big for the head.
        • I see what you're getting at, but i wasn't really trying to get him in a Mona Lisa suit, more sort of behind her, in the painting or in a cavety behind it or something. It's more to small, but if i make his head bigger, you would not recognise him, unless i make a bigger hole, but then i had to lose the "take off the mask thing" i dunno, it's a dillema.

        • If i look at it from that perspective, i see it in a better light... good luck with your entry!
        • I find this composition clever in many ways. The Gothic guys come to life, Bin Laden hiding behind Mona. He looks like hiding behind the painting, rather than being depicted on the painting, am I right?

          [Edited by User on 4/18/2009 2:10:32 PM]
        • Okay, matey, now please tell me if you have been a bad boy and added some mustache to the Gothic police woman?
