Dead Genius Ninja Artists by Shed Simas

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Who hasn’t heard of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? And who doesn’t know that they are named after four Italian Renaissance masters? Here I have replaced the turtles with the artists they were named after: Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Rafaello Sanzio, and Michelangelo Buonarroti.

Donatello carries a hammer and chisel; Da Vici wields a paintbrush; Raphael holds a pair of pencils (yes I know there were no pencils in the 1400s, but that’s minor); and Michelangelo has a pair of rasps.

Inking pens & watercolor.

After growing up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Shed Simas moved to British Columbia, Canada, to attend university. Through the progress of his education, he has come to focus his artistic practice on photography, drawing, and fiction writing, while also practicing design professionally.
