Within postmodernism there are lots of artworks being reproduced, as one aspect of postmodernism is to rob existing styles and then plaster them with a new meaning. A couple of examples of art work that has been reproduced and then given a new identity are Fuck Face by Jake and Dinos Chapman. 1994. Which can be found at:
The other is, Ronald McDonald as Michelangelo's David. 2006. Which can be found at:
Some may think that the artist has defaced and ruined these iconic images, but I like these parodies and they way that a new identity can be given to these timeless classics so they can be enjoyed in a different way and by new generations.
