In the modern-day world, influencers are everywhere we look. But, have you ever wondered what classical icons might look like in today’s landscape? Well, Portuguese digital artist, UntitledSave did. The talented artist reimagines classic art icons to help fans envision what they might look like in modern-day.
1. Frida Kahlo
First up is Frida Kahlo, who was considered one of Mexico’s most celebrated artists. She began her career as an artist painting mostly self-portraits. Years later, she became politically active when she married fellow communist artist Diego Rivera. Today, more than 50 years after her passing, she’s a feminist icon.
2. Mona Lisa
You don’t have to be an art fan to know Mona Lisa. The Mona Lisa is a half-length portrait that has been hung in the Lourve Museum for hundreds of years. The real-life Mona Lisa was the model who posed for the world-famous artist Leonardo da Vinci. The painting has been labeled as the “best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world.”
3. Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch post-impressionist painter. Over the years, he's found himself among the most famed and significant figures in the history of Western art. In the space of just over one decade, he brought to life over 2,000 pieces of artwork, including more than 800 oil paintings such as "The Starry Night" and his self-portrait.
4. Salvador Dali
Salvador Dali was a Spanish surrealist artist who was best known for his undeniable technical skill. Thanks to precise craftsmanship, he created striking and bizarre images that are admired today, more than 100-years after his passing. Considered a prodigy of his time, he drew inspiration from his visions within his subconscious and dream sequences.
5. Pablo Picasso
Pablo Picasso is another artist known globally for his work. The Spanish painter, printmaker, sculptor, and ceramist is best known for his 1937 artwork, "Guernica." His artwork was inspired by the brutal 1937 bombing of Guernica's Basque city during the Spanish Civil War.
6. Girl With A Pearl Earring
According to the internet, the "Girl with a Pearl Earring" painting is said to be worth more than £6 million. The artwork, which was created by Johannes Vermeer, is often referred to as the "Mona Lisa of the North," and it is one of the world's most famous and mysterious pieces in the art world. We think UntitledSave has done a grand job of modernizing this one.
7. Rene Magritte
As the second surrealist on the list, Rene Magritte became well-known for his thought-provoking work. Often choosing to depict ordinary objects for his out of context art, his work was known for challenging the perspective of admirers as they saw something other than reality.
