What Art History Would Look Like If Men And Women Had More Tattoos
Advertising art director Nicolas Amiard has reimagined history with his clever mash-up series called The Art of Tattoo, in which subjects from classic paintings sport modern ink.
“I’m French,” Amiard said, introducing himself to The Huffington Post over email. “I live in Paris where I’m art director at an advertising agency. As AD, I use Photoshop all day long. That’s how I technically realized these images.”
He explained that his “Art of Tattoo” series consists of full photo-manipulations. He had the idea to mix modern tattoos with classical paintings because, in his words, “I like tattoos” and mixing opposed things.
“That’s why I thought it was time to create this series,” he concluded.
