Stanley Gonczanski, a truly renaissance man, captures the real essence of our culture and behavior, and throws it back to us through his unique, witty, ironic illustrations. Almost Classic, his first art series, grabs the Master´s art pieces of the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, changing their meaning completely, giving us a very contemporary and totally new reading of our society. His ideas come to life almost surprisingly, with a great collection of art pieces that can be understood and thought about globally.
