Imagine if historic icons like Van Gogh or the Mona Lisa were modern day hipsters? Well, a Japanese graphic designer named Shusaku Takaoka used his massive innovative creativity to transform the art world’s most iconic faces into hipsters. One look at these and you’ll be saying, “Congrats! You passed Photoshop 101”.
Vermeer’s Milkmaid seems to fit right in at this Starbucks. At least her wages there are a lot better than they would have been during the Renaissance.
THE SWAGGERIFIC MONA LISA
Notice how the Mona Lisa looks a bit like Cher here? But of course, Cher is loaded and wouldn’t be caught dead riding a subway. But we liked Mona’s hair though, and that see through dress that would give any Kardashian a run for their money.
LOVING A MASTERPIECE
Uniqueness isn’t dead, and neither is romance. Looks like Van Gogh is putting the moves on the Mona Lisa. Is it odd that some claim that the Mona Lisa was Da Vinci’s attempt at drawing himself as a female? Kinky.
THE GIRL WHO WAITED
Sure, this guy’s in first line for the iPhone 5, but that poor woman’s been waiting for centuries. Doesn’t she deserve to go first? It’s amazing what a little Photoshop and some control+c and control+v can do.
Oh, Vincent, you’re looking a little more like Vincent Cassel than Vincent Van Gogh. Now that’s what we call true art on the cover of a magazine!
BEFORE THE EAR INCIDENT
Oh, Van-God! Is that our eyes deceiving us or does Van Gogh look like a modernized hipster reinvention of James Dean?
YOU SHOULD HAVE RAN
Now it’s too late. Mona Lisa looks like freaking Uma Thurman in “Pulp Fiction”. We’re not really loving those bangs, but no way we’re telling her.
SEX AND THE CITY
Looks like the Mona Lisa is going all Kristen Stewart and Alicia Cargile in modern times. Clearly Mona’s not that innocent anymore. But the girl on the right looks a bit like Russian president Putin.
Looks like the Virgin Mary’s about to drop that gospel. Go on, girl! Preach that hymn. Oh, if only, then people would be dropping into church like that scene in “Sister Act” when Whoopi made the nuns sing better.
VAN GOGH, THE PLAYER
Who knew that Van Gogh was so popular with women? Maybe that’s why he cut his ear off in the end? Too much noise. The poor man couldn’t hear himself think.
