You may have heard about artist Dito Von Tease and his project called Ditology, a gallery of finger-portraits of famous and common people. This Bologna based artist came up with a brilliant idea; his newest project called Classicool where the subject of the paintings takes selfies.

“Classicool is an iconoclastic project that blends together two apparently heterogeneous aesthetics, creating an ironic and surprising result.” Von Tease explained. “These are not just memes shared on social networks, they are finished and detailed artworks, like real paintings of the past, showing subjects in authentic and modern selfie poses.”
