Famous Paintings Overlain with Hip Hop Lyrics by Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano

Fly Art, it its own words, is “the best marriage on the Internet: Art and hip hop according to Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano,” two women from the Philippines who are making me realize all over again why there was a time when paintings caused as much controversy as rap albums.
They probably said they were going to teach both to their children but did not know how to do it! Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano have thus amused themselves to reconcile what they describe as the “two most beautiful things in life” art and hip hop on the project Fly Art.
These fun and provocative mash ups do not leave indifferent.

Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
