Throughout the ages, the paintings of artists like Vincent van Gogh and Leonardo da Vinci have captivated our thoughts and minds. Now with the advent of powerful photo manipulation tools like Photoshop, a new era of art has emerged that looks to modernize classical paintings and stimulate even more creative discussion by turning these classic paintings into GIFs or inserting celebrity mug shots or even pop culture characters into them!
Below you can see some of the best entries in a Sesame Street Renaissance contest held by Worth1000 which takes classic paintings like van Gogh’s Starry Night and Salvador Dali’s Sleep and infuses them with your favorite Sesame Street characters like Big Bird, Elmo and the Cookie Monster. In fact, you’ll likely want to Scream out for some cookies by the end of the gallery.
