The Mona Lisa is probably one of the most recognised and parodied piece of art in existence. Having been meddled and messed around with all sorts of poses, it only seemed right that she was given a modern gadget, ‘fashionable’ makeup and, left to her own devices in front of the ladies’ mirror. Her enigmatic pucker and uneven eyebrow, gives an air of slight confused confidence as she presses the button and hopes for the best. She’s guaranteed to raise a smile, or an eyebrow.

Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches showed his flair for invention – a submarine, parachute and helicopter have all been doodled. Perhaps he sketched the idea for the mobile phone on the back of some old parchment? We’ll never know, but adding it with his painting is a great idea for a digital reworking.

This set of prints began with Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’. She was modernised with graphic tablet, and shortly after, the Mona Lisa, Vitruvian Man and the Last Supper all followed suit. Many hours of digital painting and reworking later, and the series of images took a life of their own.

All work is created with Adobe Photoshop and Wacom tablet.
