When Art meets Louis

I was bored today at work and decided to do a Google image search and found this interpretation of Murakami's signature multicolore on a man's bust. The caption read: Louis Vuitton David Bust, 2005; found object, gold leaf, acrylic; 28" x 13" x13". I LVoe the idea that the iconic monogram and flowers were superimposed to a clearly classical image. It reminds me of the different interpretations of the Mona Lisa that has populated the art world for centuries. This time, though, Trek Thunder Kelly (the artist) has combined antiquity with Vuitton's contemporary design. For the actual site, click here.
