I love Art history appropriation, Chad Wys tumblr account is one of my favourite’s as is the “mean girls art history‘ Instagram too. There’s a lot of bad art appropriation out there but I love the humour and contrasting techniques that manipulating historical works of art can bring when done well. My latest obsession is @copylabs Instagram account. @copylab or Chris Rellas as he is know started the account just a few months ago, manipulating well known pieces of art including: “The Birth of Venus” by William Adolphe Bouguereau with fashion pieces like a Nasty Gal swim suit. My favourites include: ““Girl with a Chanel Earring” adapted from Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer. Beyond the novelty aspect of @copylab’s work there’s also a hint of irony, Rellas takes a photo of Frida Kahlo and adds a Céline logo entitling the image “Frida For Céline” contrasting against Frida’s anti-capitalist values. Rellas’s work highlights the increasing blurring of boundaries between art and consumerism.
