Ukranian artist and designer Alexey Kondakov merges figures from classical oil paintings with photographic scenes of modern Naples. The figures effortless merge with their present day surroundings, two women looking perfectly bored flipping through comic books in the back of a dusty book store, while a different woman takes a nap beside a latte and half-eaten sandwich. See more amusing juxtapositions from “Art History in Contemporary Life” here.

New Jeremy Fish Mural @ Tony’s Pizza Napoletana in North Beach, San Francisco

If you haven’t been to Tony’s Pizza in North Beach, it is the best pizza in that particular area of the San Francisco, North Beach to you and I. North Beach is where Italians live, and where Jeremy Fish lives, and Tony’s is right across from Washington Square Park.

Mr Fish just painted a mural on the side of Tony’s, so when you go to eat pizza by a man who spent extensive time in Naples learning the true craft of a real pizza recipe, then you can do it on a summer day outside with a Fish mural by your side.
