How Fly Can You Make Fine Art?

I mean...can you imagine a mash up of Vincent van Gogh and Kanye West? I do realize I just lost over half of the readership of Exquisitely Geek in one line, but bear with with me. Mash ups are super popular these days and I stumbled across a Fine Art/Hip Hop mash up that has brought me an amazing amount of giggles for the past couple of weeks...

see what I mean! 

The Starry Night (1889), Vincent van Gogh / Diamonds From Sierra Leone, Kanye West

The visual arts are always meant to be inspiring and thought provoking, but song lyrics are also means to leave you with inspirations and thoughts as remnants.
Bam! (To quote Emeril) Marriage made in heaven. Want to spice up your Tumblr Home Feed? Follow Fly Art. It is amazing the Mashups they have been able to design recently. Here are some examples:

Joan of Arc at the Coronation of Charles VII (1854), Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres / Proud of You, Drake feat. Nicki Minaj

 Hell (1450), Dirk Bouts / Drop It Like It’s Hot, Snoop Dogg feat. Pharell Williams

Summer Evening (1947), Edward Hopper / Get Lucky, Daft Punk feat. Pharrell

Can you think of any great works of art that deserve a Hip Hop lyric layering?Enjoy!
