You know what is the shizzz? Transforming Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights (above) into Gannis’ Garden of Emoji Delights (below)! I came across this piece at Pulse 2015, and was FLOORED, after seeing the original in Museo del Prado in Madrid AND after studying the original painting extensively at IU when I was getting my BA in Art History. I mean WOW. There are no words to describe my excitement for turning an iconic piece of art history into a contemporary, relatable, fascinating work of art that represents the 21st century – just as Bosch’s work reflected themes and issues of his time.
Take a look for yourself! LIKE WOWZAHSSSSS. Seriously. I am so beyond in love.
Check out the comparissons from the original painting to the 21st century remake!
21st Century Gannis Version:
Need I say more?! This piece totally is the definition of reworking an old master and giving it a meaning that is relatable to us today.
