In his Art Remixed series, artist Gary Andrew Clarke has taken well-known pieces of art and “distilled, reduced and remixed” them into approximately 200 exact circles of color.  The resulting collection is a bold riff on pointillism that would make Seurat green with envy.  A native of the United Kingdom, Clarke often goes by the “pen” name Graphic Nothing.

'Marilyn Monroe,' 'Mona Lisa,' and 'The Son of Man' by Gary Andrew Clarke.

I recently became aware of Andy Warhol’s Rorschach paintings.  Completed toward the end of his career, they are a stark departure from the celebrity focused screen prints he is most closely associated with.  As Mia Fineman has said in Artnet.com Magazine, they “have the kind of star quality that Warhol always admired. Liquid, protean and seductively vacant, they reflect your own desires and fantasies right back at you.”  A large collection of Andy Warhol’s work is currently on exhibit at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore.
