The latest installment in the trend of remixing classical paintings with contemporary elements, the Swoosh Art tumblr contains a collection of images of famous classical masterpieces with the Nike swoosh cleverly inserted. These works of culturally and historically significant art clearly makes a comment about consumerism. Some images even contain the well-known “just do it” slogan, and variations on this slogan (Just Klimt, Just Warhol, etc) are also found on the tumblr. I don’t know who is behind the tumblr, but I like it.
We had a slight detour to Riebeeck-Kasteel on the way back from Malmesbury. The kind-of-kitch shirt I’m wearing is actually in-trend this summer, go and get yours from Pick ‘n Pay for R130, that’s what I did.
Thanks to Pinterest, Tumblr and CHANEL’s websuite for the inspiration and amazing graphics. Oh and PicMonkey – you are a superb editor.
