If Famous Faces From Classical Paintings Discovered Selfies

Portrait Of An Unknown Woman – Ivan Kramskoy, 1883

In “Classicool” the subjects of the paintings abandon their classical pose and take over the canvas to literally “paint themselves”. Some of the most famous classical portraits and self-portraits in the world are reborn within the digital ecosystem of social networks.

These are not just memes shared on social networks, they are finished and detailed artworks, like real paintings of the past, showing subjects in authentic and modern selfie poses. “Classicool” is an iconoclastic project that blends together two apparently heterogeneous aesthetics, creating an ironic and surprising result.
