Firstly I would like to apologize for the lack of blog posts so far this Easter! I’ve been pretty busy, so unfortunately have no found the time to write as much as I would have liked. I am, however, slogging away attempting to write my dissertation. It’s taking a while, and I am finding it hard (I have so much I want to say, but have no idea how to articulate it), but the show must go on!
Anyway, this is a bit of a random post. I was looking on BuzzFeed the other day (my guilty pleasure), and I saw this awesome article about paintings throughout art history which have been ‘updated’ by a Ukrainian artist called Nastya Ptichek. I thought it was pretty entertaining, so have uploaded a few of her images to this post! They’re petty cool, and I think they will speak out to a lot of us who use social media. It’s very clear. So even though I am procrastinating, I have still managed to find a way of including art history. Some of the images (the religious ones) run parallel to my revision for my exam in May. So really, I’m technically still doing some ‘work’! Yeah right…
