Celebrity portraits as 17th-century Russian generals
Artist Steve Payne is using digital copies of Napoleon-era portraits of Russian generals to create new potraits featuring family, friends -- and celebrities. The celebrity portraits can be purchased, and are suitable for hanging over your fireplace! "The original images are large and detailed and although this is digital art, when printed onto canvas and with a suitably ornate gold frame, they do look quite impressive. The canvas texture makes the print look like an actual oil painting." Replaceface, £250.
