Art has always been a vital part of every culture’s rich history. It helps with the development of a human person, especially in learning and understanding difficult concepts. This is because it puts the different parts of your brain at work, from the usual problem solving to encouraging critical thinking skills and making the complex concepts easier to understand. Art also helps us develop the emotional, financial, and psychological aspects of our lives, as well as shape our individual and collective personalities. Over the years, there have been many new art forms have emerged. As we progressed and moved forward, so did art. They say that art was always meant to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. However, I think art is also meant to entertain us from time to time. That is why here are some of the classical arts with the funniest modern twists, all credits to the digital artist, Varkey.
When You Realize Your Poker Face Is Not So Great
Edward Antoon Portielje is a Belgian genre painter whose works are usually influenced by the Realism art style. Some of his well-known works are Afternoon Tea, The Newborn, and The Winning Hand. His artistic training started at École des Beaux-Arts in Antwerp, under Charles Verlat’s supervision, who also taught Van Gogh during the early 1880s.
The Winning Hand might be one of his best works, but digital artist, Varkey had other plans. He added a modern yet funny twist by making this piece of art into a meme template. It still showed the two women from Portielje’s original artwork, but Varkey added the funny conversation that is so relatable, that it becomes even funnier. I mean what a hand.
