Artist Paints Superhero Costumes on Christian Figures
Fascinated by religiosity, Italian artist Igor Scalisi Palminteri took the statues of various Christian saints and painted them over with the costumes of superheroes.
In his series of sculptures called ‘Hagiographies’, he believes that the saints are not so far off from the modern day superheroes and by painting the costumes over, it would ‘embody’ their ‘superhero characteristics’ and raise them as a model for all to imitate.
Is this art or blasphemy?
