What is the idea behind this project?
"These days it feels like no matter where you turn, someone is working on a new innovative project, truly believing it will change the world - reminding me of Florence of the 15th century", says Eran Shavit, creator of Uffizi Art.
"The art masterpieces and projects of that time were a landmark in human history, changing lives of millions over centuries. However, most of these pieces have lost their glamor thanks to our evolving culture".
"We're taking the most famous and revolutionary art pieces of the renaissance and giving them our own modern-digital unique interpretation as they deserve.
LET'S MAKE ART GREAT AGAIN!".
Who's behind the scenes?
"Growing in a family of artists, I've always carried this passion for creating art with me hoping it will flower one day and this day has arrived. I've been painting for as long as I can remember. It was during my military service when I fell in love with digital painting and right after I got my bachelor degree when I knew this is what I want to do."
Eran Shavit (26) is an Israeli artist who's inspired by the great minds of the Italian Renaissance. Currently working in the Tech industry, combining his two passions in file art and technology.
Eran's art is published on the internet, social media and various kinds of product lines.
"Every social media platform and every website can easily become a gallery, the only thing you have to do is put what's in your heart and on your mind out there, for everyone to enjoy it."
