Simpsonize It!

Professor of the British Higher School of Art and Design (Moscow)  Dmitriy Karpov, trying to squeeze  maximum creativity out of his students, came up with rather inordinate project. Students were assigned to re-create several well-known paintings of famous Russian artists by… “simpsonizing” them.

The project did not carry any social or political agenda. By way of  humorous reinvention, students came “face-to-face” with the masterpieces of their national  classic art.  And yes, TV show Simpsons has become  a staple of the Russian TV “menu”, and remains so for quite some time already.

AdMe.ru offers a look at the result of student creativity. I couldn’t resist sharing it here, adding artists’ birth/death dates and paintings’ titles. The names of the participating students were withheld by omission on the site that reported it first. Take a look.
