Long ago, before the days of people sitting together and choosing to play on their smartphones rather than communicating, existed an age where there were no gadgets like smartphones and tablets. Thankfully, that age of savagery is now over. We can’t change what went down in the past, but we can change how we see it. Correcting those historical wrongs, Kim Dong-Kyu has created a series where we see classic art awash with modern gadgets.
Seeing these changes, it looks like having modern gadgets is the most natural thing to do with posture. For nearly all these images, the artist has been able to add smartphones and tablets to the image in a way that does not affect the posture of the characters.
Another fair effort is drawing the gadgets in line with the style and the feel of paintings, so alien objects as they are, they don’t really stand out as sores thrust into the classic works of art.
