Artist Adds 21st-Century Gadgets Into Famous Paintings

Korean Illustrator Kim Dong-Kyu has created a clever and comical series of images on his “Art X Smart” Tumblr that re-imagines old famous masterpieces for the 21st century by introducing modern smartphones, tablets and laptops. Some famous artists must be rolling in their grave (William Blake’s The Ancient Days now showing a deity creating the world through his iPad??) But this is a fairly accurate reflection of how our world looks right now unfortunately – everyone is engrossed in their own digital world.
