When Dürer Is Hit by a Sexy One-Liner
From Caravaggio to Christina Aguilera, the Next Level Art World Memes
Entertainment 24 Dec 2018

All hail @drugowl. Forget everything you know about art world memes, @drugowl is going to be the next viral sensation with Old Masters and classical art memes, a growing trend among the arty Instagram crowd.

Fair enough. We love the use of Caravaggios, Boteros and Albrecht Dürer paintings emblazoned with sexy one-liners.
“I love art history and I love painting,” says @drugowl. “I thought, Why not give art history some captions about sex, lies, love, and insecurity? Museums and public spaces should be occupied for the enjoyment of its people, we are the people.”
