Artist Transforms Famous Paintings Into Selfies

There is no doubt in my mind that 99,9% is more than familiar with the term “selfie”. But for the ones living under a rock:

Definition of selfie : an image of oneself taken by oneself using a digital camera especially for posting on social networks

The first-known appearance of selfie in written form occurred in 2002 on an Australian news website, but the word didn’t see much use until 2012. By November 2013, selfie was appearing frequently enough in print and electronic media that the Oxford English Dictionary chose the word as its Word of the Year.

Dito Von Tease has taken this trend back in time as he turned multiple classical paintings into selfies, so they would fit into the digital ecosystem of social networks. He calls this series “Classicool”.
