Modern Celebrities in Classic Paintings

August 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

Ever wondered what modern celebrities would look like in classic paintings by Vincent van Gogh or Leonardo da Vinci? We didn’t either, until someone told us to enter the words “modern celebrities in classic paintings” into a google search.

What joy such a search brings! You have Johnny Depp as the Girl With a Pearl Earring (by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer), Leonardo DiCaprio as a Vincent van Gogh self portrait, and the likes of Angelina Jolie, Jack Nicholson, Steve Carell and Nicole Kidman looking all very regal in their classic resplendent-ness.

If you love these, then you’ll LOVE LOVE LOVE the portrait art currently for sale on artFido. You can check it out HERE.

Finally, if you think you can do better than the Twisted Celebrity portraits below, then you should definitely enter our #TwistedCeleb competition on Instagram which you can see HERE. Entry is completely free and there are lots of great prizes to be won.
