When the painting of the 19th century meets modern social networks, a series of creations of the American artist Shawn Huckins, who reproduces with acrylic paint the great pieces of American painting from the 19th century by superimposing large white letters inspired by modern social media jargon. Between Facebook updates, hipster tweets, hashtags and acronyms, some beautiful and anachronistic creations.
