Riffing on masterpieces by the likes of Botticelli, Dali, and Monet, artist Svetlana Petrova recreated some of the world’s most famous paintings with the addition of her gloriously fat ginger cat, Zarathustra. Oh, the power of Photoshop. See the rest of the works here.

!! OMG, not a smudge in sight: Aaaaamazing pencil drawings !!

article-2115297-122DDD62000005DC-789_964x667.jpg
Nope, that’s not a a photograph you’re looking at. It’s a drawing. From pencil. Crazy, right?! 47-year-old Scottish artist Paul Cadden creates his hyperrealist renderings from photos, recreating every tiny detail for anywhere between three and six weeks. A single canvas usually costs about $7,800 — you know, in case you were thinking about buying a little something for the mantel.

It was only a matter of time before the world’s preeminent pop artist got his own pop-up spot in New York City — coming this May to the big apple is a satellite venue of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburg sponsored by Hugo Boss as part of the Frieze Art Fair. Expect to see lots and lots of Warhol’s Polaroids and probably a Campbell’s soup can or two.

!! OMG, Heyyyyyy!: Stefon Zolesky’s clubs come to life !!

russian01.jpg
SNL’s resident club character, Stefon Zolesky, has been to some pretty wild places. And he describes them in such…illuminating detail. Yet the fantastical parameters of these fictional hotspots always made them rather difficult to picture — until now. Splitsider asked illustrators to render a few of the Zolesky’s creations based on the transcript and clip of each sketch. This one, called HEYYYYYY!, has the most gay appeal, but maybe that’s just me projecting my desire for a slice of Russian manmeat:

If you’re looking to get festive with your family, I’ve got the perfect place for you. New York’s hottest club is Heyyyyyy! Built from the bucket list of a dying pervert, this Battery Park bitch parade is now managed by overweight game show host Fat Sajak. This place has everything: tweakers, skeevies, Spud Webb, a child, and a Russian guy who runs on the treadmill in a Cosby sweater. So come on down this weekend — the bouncer is a bulldog who looks like Wilford Brimley and the password is “diabeetus.”

!! OMG, Venus reborn: 90s waif Venus !!

Alexandre-Cabanel-the-Birth-of-Venus.jpg
This masterpiece painted by Alexandre Cabanel depicting the birth of Venus? Yeah, something’s wrong with it: Venus. Or rather her hips, according to our contemporary standards of beauty inflamed by the powers of Photoshop. Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano highlights this fact in Venus, a project that slims down art history’s famous nudes from Botticelli to Ingres. Rubens, for one, would have been shocked. See the rest of Giordano’s re-imagined nudes over at Flavorwire.
