Renaissance is a term used to identify the period of the History of Europe approximately between the end of the XIV century and the middle of the XVI century. But does that mean we must travel back in time to see familiar faces in this era? Not necessarily!

Artists from the old site called Worth1000 (now Design Crowd) gathered in a photoshop battle of Modern Renaissance. The idea is to capture the moment and recreate famous paintings of Renaissance, but with a modern twist. That is, to digitally manipulate these paintings to have faces of 21st-century celebrities in them. 

Scroll down the page and see the best of this contest that has lasted for 15 years!
