Los Angeles-based artist Vartan Garnikyan has created a series of illustrations that features famous classic paintings transformed into Batman-themed pop art.
This is my way of helping artists like Van Gogh and Da Vinci keep trending after all these centuries. I might be wrong, but I can’t help but notice how indifferent the general public is with classic art these days. I feel like every generation has a little less interest in the past. I have to admit, I feel especially accomplished when people comment on my pictures on Instagram and ask things like “when was the original painted?”
I’ve been working professionally with the movie studios for 10+ years; creating posters, standees, DVD boxes, etc. I have only started experimenting with my art for about three years now. I must admit, it’s been an incredible 3 years. I don’t plan ever to stop. I can’t thank you all enough for all the support you’ve shown me in the last six months. I’m forever grateful and wake up smiling every single day..
