Rebirth of Venus

A story of Venus, born in our reality of today. It's inspired by "The Birth of Venus" by Sandro Botticell. Unlike Venus of Botticelli, which is very romantic painting, the real world we live in today is far from being romantic. This why my digital painting is less romantic and more sarcastic. In this work instead of pastoral sea you'll find an image of sea on dirty and peeled wall, instead of seashell - a manhole cover, instead of flowers - cigarette butts and alcohol bottles...
