In "Classicool" the subjects of the paintings abandon their classical pose and take over the canvas to literally "paint themselves".

Some of the most famous classical portraits and self-portraits in the world are reborn within the digital ecosystem of social networks.

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.

"Classicool" is an iconoclastic project that blends together two apparently heterogeneous aesthetics, creating an ironic and surprising result.

Van Gogh was broke and couldn't afford to pay for models so he has used to paint himself over and over again. That's why we see lots of portraits of himself. Sometimes he couldn't afford to buy a new canvas, so he painted each side of the canvas or painted his old painting in white then started over again. What a passion for painting! Definitely, one of the best artists of all time. So sad, his masterpiece paintings became popular 20 years after he passed away.
