When classical painting goes crazy – The twisted collages of Barry Kite

The twisted collages of American artist Barry Kite, who diverts the famous masterpieces of classical painting to create funny compositions featuring the Mona Lisa, Vincent van Gogh or the Girl with a pearl. Between visual sampling, repositioning and parody, the collages of Barry Kite create an unlikely encounter between art history and Internet memes, exploring the modern and unbridled exploitation of images in our contemporary societies. Barry Kite‘s creations are available on the website of his studio Aberrant Art.
