"Great masters having great times," states the description of the Art.Lies Instagram account. And it delivers on that promise.
The account features some of our favorite characters from classic paintings — be it Edvard Munch's "The Scream" or one of Frida Kahlo's self portraits — juxtaposed with real life people and places.
Despite what the Instagram account states, the artist behind the project is not Lorenzo Castellini.
"My real name is Loro Verz. [It's the] first time i am telling that to a journalist," Verz told A Plus. "I decided to create another artist called Lorenzo Castellini to run a parallel project with my ongoing one and use cut outs to show how surreal is living in Sao Paulo!"
To create these surreal snaps, Verz uses a technique he calls "aorcollage". He "air collages" people, or rather cut outs, over day-to-day situations .
"Cities are not textures or architecture. Cities are people," the artist explained.
Scroll down to see his work. We have to say, these are pretty clever.
