Artist reimagines classical paintings with pop culture characters

Digital artist Lothlenan is transforming classical paintings into the ultimate fan fantasies by placing favorite anime, cartoon, and video game characters into these elaborate scenes.

Revamping iconic artwork from the 18th and 19th centuries, Lothlenan cleverly inserts these contemporary figures, all while keeping the style of the original painting.

From Monet's loose brushstrokes to the painstaking detail of Fragonard's Rococo foliage, no detail is spared.

In fact, Lothlenan's work isn't only an exercise in fandom art, but also how to capture different artistic styles digitally.

“This was a nice exercise in mark making and trying to salvage texture in a digital painting,” the artist writes of working from a Monet painting.
