in the absurdly giddy and often gruesome world digitally animated by kajetan obarski, magritte paintings become the subject of horrifying yet hilarious happenings, while van gogh opens a peculiar present that doesn’t go over too well. the artist, who goes by the name kiszkiloszki, brings classical paintings to contemporary life with a distinctively sinister sensibility, mixing modern technology, gore and grim subject matters. the absurd scenes see the digital modification of fine artworks as animated gifs, depicting short, looping sequences that are as biting as they are bizarre. see a selection of kiszkiloszki’s animations below and the full, ongoing series here
