In studying the history and roots of art, I came up with an idea to have a fun take on a masterpiece while keeping some of the essence of the original art. The reference art is Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Last Supper.” I used the same one-point perspective that Da Vinci used while mirroring the physical behavior of subjects from the original. I also projected the color of the clothing from the original onto the birds' feathers, as another not-so-subtle nod to the original piece.
