School of Athens

Few days ago I was invited again by the crews of Indonesian Visual Art Archive to participate and also to photograph them in another attempt of classical painting appropriation. We have done a classical painting appropriation two years ago when they moved out to their current office. At that time, we picked Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper. This time, IVAA director Farah Wardani already picked Raphael’s The School of Athens.
