When Worlds Collide, Internet Edition

You know that feeling when you stumble upon something that is just totally and completely you? Well *cue angelic singing,* that’s what happened when I discovered the world of classical art memes on Instagram. Three of my biggest interests: art history, pop culture and dry humor, all come together on my favorite social platform — Instagram — to bring some quality #content to my feed. (Let’s be real, how many ‘grams of the Dior Saddle bag can a girl look at before she gets bored?!)

From using Van Gogh to illustrate millennial anxiety, to putting rap lyrics on historically famous paintings, these meme creators have education to back their dark humor. I love when a joke has substance – makes me feel like my meme obsession is more high-culture than low-culture… (lying to myself? Yes).
Intrigued? Do yourself a favor and search the hashtag #classicalartmemes on Instagram, and consider yourself “cultured!”
