Monsters in Famous Paintings

Over at the Worth1000 website there was a Photoshop competition where artists were asked to imagine that the renaissance period in art also had monsters and aliens around.
There’s some pretty scary works submitted, and a lot of them are very convincing! One of my favorites was this scary looking Mona Lisa below (Scary Lisa). There’s also Mona Satan and another scary Mona Lisa here.

This contest asks a simple question: If the renaissance took place in more recent times, and the models were famous movie monsters/aliens, what would the artwork have looked like? See the rest of the entries at Worth1000.

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.


  1. I love

  2. Yeah me too. I like their photoshop competitions that relate to art.. where famous paintings are changed or distorted.

  3. There’s more artistic talent at Worth1000 than there is in most “Modern Art” galleries. Scary Lisa is a good example, although my favourite in this latest competition is Kong converting St Paul. Check out the previous comp. Robo5 has a superbly sinister Bouguereau girl and a briliant Michelangelo David robot. And neither won! This shows the depth of talent on this website.
