February 2018 Challenge of the Month

‘Pimp My Classic’

DEADLINE:

February 21st 2018

THEME:

Recreate a well known classical painting (illustrated/painted from scratch, referenced from a piece from at least 150+ years ago), reinterpreted as a modern ‘pimped-out’ artwork, including references, styling and as much popular and cool stuff as possible! The newly pimped-out image must be re-imagined as being from a post 80’s era, up to either modern day – it cannot be set in a time earlier than the 80’s, or later than today.

Submissions will be judged on the following:

1 – Technical execution and quality of the art

2 – Creativity and originality of the piece

3 – Ambition of the artwork
