Artist: Barry X Ball / by john cheng

Sculptor Barry X Ball has re-imagined Renaissance masterpieces through 3D-scanning and re-rendering them through 3D software by refining what the original artist may have intended as well as adding in his own ideas and then proceeds to 3D-printing the sculptures, refining the smaller details by hand after the fact.

These are beautiful works of art by the masters that have been given new life in a modern context and it amazes me still how new tools being invented today can be applied and add to conversations that had started hundreds of years ago.
