Selected: Figures Removed From Classic Paintings

These simplified classic artworks will warm any photoshoppers heart. In his series “Selected,” artist Mike Guppy has taken such iconic paintings as The Birth of Venus and the Mona Lisa, replacing their central figures with an animated gif outline resembling the selection tools ‘marching ants.’ His near seamless backgrounds easily trick the eye into believing the main character never existed, lending a distinct air of re-written history.

Mona Lisa – Leonardo de Vinci

Son of a Man – René Magritte

The Scream – Edvard Munch
