Agape Charmani for Art-Sheep

Since the Internet took over our lives, many interesting, unique and shocking things have come to our knowledge. One of the things that my time on the Internet taught me is that, people have a lot of time to spare and the outcome of this situation is very often extremely enjoyable.
For young artists, the chance to show their work to the world has never been easier. And with this being possible, they can produce and exhibit extremely imaginative ideas, like combining art with hip hop music. And no, this is not an article for Jay Z and his obsession with Picasso, Andy Warhol or Jean-Michel Basquiat. This is about an artist duo, Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano, who according to their facebook page have formed “the best marriage on the internet”.

Their Fly Art project merges famous Reinanescance, romantic, impressionistic, surrealist or even pop paintings with hip hop lyrics by artists such as Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar. According to their blog, their work is “an homage to the finer things in life: art and hip hop”. In their strange, yet superb, memes one can find Mona Lisa complaining about other people’s basicness, Boticceli’s Venus praising her own beauty and Vincent Van Gogh bragging about his swag.
