Last year, the Getty team began to notice a growing art history influence among image-makers and creatives who reference classical art in their work. Years ago, I coined the term "Meta Renaissance" to describe some of the work...
Since this was always one of my favorite pieces, I had saved writing about it on here for later in my series of prints, and I eventually forgot to write about it. But since I recently made a couple of prints of it available on my etsy shop, I figure this would be a good... Continue Reading →
