The result is not only a painting that pretends to be a painting and a relationship with an environment, a sometimes strange and inhospitable scenery, or a deteriorated or residual support, it is also the action of taking the picture of the museum, stealing the image… and the sacrum of the institution to put it in another place, in a place where it is never seen or seen in a different way.

Inspired by the work of old masters, Madrid-based artist Julio Anaya Cabanding frees famous paintings from museum walls and brings them to the urban environment. Working on found materials such a cardboard or wood, Cabanding reworks iconic paintings with minute detail to juxtapose them against an urban setting.
