It may seem that classic art and hip hop doesn't have much in common, but artists Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano definitely disagree.
Their mashup photos for Fly Art Productions take some of the most famous classic paintings and combine them with lines from hip hop songs. These strategically placed rap lyrics over pieces of classic art make for one memorable and hilarious photos series.
