Disney movies are an inspiration for artists around the world.
I am sure you already know this seeing how many artists decide to recreate Disney princesses with twists or sometimes simply in their own style. Well, that is what Carlos has done today. Rather than doing another re-imagination in his own style, he decided to recreate these characters in the image of renaissance paintings and pop culture references. It is a weird mix when you say it aloud but the results speak for themselves.
From Cinderella in the guise of Katy Perry to Belle recreating the scene from a painting, these illustrations are certainly very unique. The artist has also done his best to keep the original style in mind so as to not stray too far from it. And I have to say that the illustrations are a unique blend of beauty and something that never even crossed my mind. You can see what I am talking about by scrolling below.

With respect to the versions that I like to make on paintings of the history of art, my main objective is to help to make them known. There are many great works of art that are not so well known by society, I think that with this I contribute my grain of sand to all those paintings that are not usually known or are not usually studied in schools. Then, on a personal level, I would like to be able to make a living from my artistic work, so that what since I was a child was a hobby, becomes my livelihood.
Art was more than a hobby, it was a tool with which I felt comfortable and confident in my day-to-day life.
