The Louvre Should Update Its Collection With This Guy's Modern Versions Of Classical Art

Ever heard of Botticelli's famous painting "The Birth of Riri"?

How do you make today's multitasking, self-centered, technology-obsessed society care about something as delicate as classical art?

This guy might have an answer.

Bucharest, Romania-based conceptual artist Dan Cretu is working on an ongoing series of images that merge classical paintings with modern pop culture symbols, thus giving a new perspective on the centuries-old works of art.

A perspective, that could possibly make us appreciate art more or at least give us a good dose of laughter? Whichever it is, check out some of our favorites of Cretu's pieces below:


When bae doesn't text you back.

Listening to Adele's new single.

Make money like Monet.

We know what you did last summer.

When you're 32, but your inner child has a tendency of taking over ...

Getting down like it's 1566.

You used to call me on my cellphone ...

They're lovin' it!

Who runs the world? Girls!

"The Birth of Riri."
