A couple of days ago, the St. Petersburg artist Andrei Sikorsky published on his Facebook the latest work of the series "Postmodern project "Substitution"". In this project, the artist took the paintings of great painters as a basis and superimposed heroes from other canvases on them. When looking at a new creation, the viewer unconsciously experiences cognitive dissonance, which is what Sikorsky wanted.

The 53rd work in a row is the painting "Midnighters", originally written by Edward Hopper. However, Sikorsky greatly transformed it by adding a huge number of characters from other artists to the plot. So, the heroes of Gauguin, Picasso, Munch, Magritte, Chagall and many others are now having a great time in the picture.
