BEHOLD, THE ARTISTIC GENIUS OF YOUNG THUG AS CLASSICAL PAINTINGS

Do you like Renaissance paintings? Do you like Young Thug? Have you ever thought, ‘hey, it would probably be pretty cool if they combined those two things, I guess.’ Well you, and the rest of the millions upon millions of people who thought that, are in luck, because the Instagram @youngthugaspaintings has answered the call.

The shouty king of hip-hop unorthodoxy mirrors classic Boticellis, Vermeers and Rembrandts with surprising ease. However, we’re particularly fond of this flawless, wheelchair bound appearance next to Frida Kahlo - probs our fave Thugger feature since his hook on Rich Gang’s Lifestyle.

The account was started by 22-year-old art student Hajar Benjida, who describes it as ‘literally my school project’. If she didn’t get top marks for this, then there really is no point to higher education. We mean, look at it.
