Over the weekend, a photo collage by Dan Cretu caught our eye on Bizarre Art.

Not because it racked up 1,200 shares. Not because it combined two things we love — “Friends” and classical paintings. And not because it looked like a trend we’ve been seeing on PicsArt.

Honestly, we just thought it was funny.

People have been editing celebrities into classical paintings for a while. And they’ve been editing figures from classical paintings into modern photos too.

But we’ve noticed something else. People have started using PicsArt photo editor and collage maker to completely remix classic paintings into modern day works of art.

If you’ll allow us the bad pun…

Renaissance art may be having a bit of a renaissance (#SorryNotSorry).

We can see why some people wouldn’t be into the trend. After all, it’s using photo editing to digitally modify some incredible works of art. But here at PicsArt, we’re all about changing things up — especially if it means taking an image and transforming it into something else. Plus… we’ll admit that we love a good laugh. So sit back, relax and check out some of our favorite #RenaissanceRemix edits on PicsArt below.

Honestly, who would have thought Mona Lisa would look so good with a buzz cut? It’s very Katy Perry and we love it.

Speaking of Katy Perry… potential new album cover?

And this. Leave it to the internet to turn one of the greatest works of art of all time into an even greater cat photo.

Hey girl, we felt pretty much the same way when we tried the unicorn frappuccino.

Internet, meet Antoine Lavoisier. He missed the memo that crystal crowns are the new flower crown, but since he still pulls it off (and also because he’s the father of modern chemistry), we’ll let it slide.

When someone wants to take a picture before you’ve had your coffee. Girl with a pearl earring, we feel you.

And last, Vincent Van Gogh’s self-portrait with a modern twist. We’d just title this one “Creepin.”
