This artist reinvents famous artists and icons as modern influencers
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – A fantastic Instagrammer has put his special talents to good use, creating images showing what life might look like if iconic classic artists or subjects could look like if they were modern-day influencers.
From Mona Lisa browsing a record store to Van Gogh rolling through the streets on a skateboard, Untitled Save has it all. We’ve got a selection of the best to give you a reason to follow.
Vincent Van Gogh on a walk
Van Gogh may have failed as an artist during his lifetime, but we bet he would have made more waves with access to social media.
There he is, tearing up the streets on his favorite board.
Nothing to see here, just Pablo Picasso cradling what looks like a 3D printed gun and a Champion hoodie. Because why not?
Salvador Dalí was a man of many talents – an artist who dabbled in painting, drawing, sculpting, writing and more.
He was also an eccentric with a knack for performing thrilling stunts. Add to that the fact that he embraced both anarchism and communism and it’s not too hard to imagine him as a modern-day influencer.
Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter who flourished in the early 1900s and was known for her many portraits and self-portraits.
It seems perfectly appropriate for her to be on Instagram bashing selfies, but at least with an artistic vibe.
Mona Lisa and Van Gogh
We love this imagination of Untitled Save – seeing two classic art icons transformed into one image.
Mona Lisa is obviously the classic beautiful image anyway, seeing her cuddled up with Van Gogh is certainly intriguing.
Embarkation of Michael Jackson
If the King of Pop hadn’t died in 2009, what would his personal profile be today?
Would it still be a big deal? Could he be the most followed Instagrammers of all time? What would he do online?

Dalí and the work of art
As fun as it might be to see Dalí wearing denim and sporting his magnificent mustache, it would be much cooler to see him with artwork.
Although it raised an eyebrow when meeting some of them in the real world.
Marilyn Monroe was an iconic legend. The quintessential blonde bombshell and incredibly popular sex symbol of the 50s and 60s.
How would she behave in modern society and what would her social media account look like? We would certainly like to know. Untitled Save imagines it understated and oozing with modern freshness.
Andy Warhol was a leading artist in the visual arts movement and is well known for his works in pop art.
Soup may be his most well-known image, this hilarious take on him as an influencer sees him wearing a t-shirt with his own art on it.
You may not recognize his face, but it is Gustav Klimt.
An Austrian Symbolist painter who was primarily known for painting the female form and perhaps best known for The Kiss. One wonders how he would have lived his life in modern times.
The girl with the pearl
We love the idea of classic and iconic paintings and artworks coming to life – subjects suddenly in human form living normal lives.
Here, the girl with the pearl earring by Johannes Vermeer is seen relaxing in Porto. One wonders what she would think of the world several hundred years after being painted.
The original painting here is by Caravaggio and dates from 1596. It depicts Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, drunkenness, fertility, and drama.
A beautiful classic piece of art, it was smart on many levels. The focus of the image invites the viewer to succumb to their desires while sitting with a rotten apple among the other fruits arranged before them.
Now Elvis is in his place and he doesn’t look very happy.
Leonardo da Vinci was a legend of his time. A painter, draughtsman, engineer, scientist, theorist, sculptor and architect, he was a man of many talents and influenced human society for years after his death.
Here he is reinvented as another type of influencer. Probably not as influential though.
Even imaginary people get the special treatment from influencers. Here, Princess Jasmine poses in Portugal.
