Artist Inserts Pop Culture Characters Into Classical Paintings To Create A Hilarious Twist


Lothlenan is a digital artist on Tumblr who is changing the way the younger generation interprets classic art by turning some of fine art's most timeless pieces into geeky fantasy settings. So far, they've revamped 7 tableaux, inspired by fandoms like Sailor Moon, Adventure Time, and The Legend of Zelda. It's amazing how century-old paintings take on such a modern feel when combined with elements of Anime!

If you're a geek extraordinaire and can't even deal with how flipping cool these paintings are, you're in luck – Lothlenon currently operates a Redbubble store where they sell stunning prints of each design. Who wouldn't want an impressionist Totoro-à-la-Monet on their wall?
