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.

Inspired by Anna Utopia Giordano’s ‘Venus’ project, I decided to apply today’s standard of beauty to Leonardo DaVinci’s Mona Lisa.  I plumped her lips, made her eyes larger, slimmed and elongated her neck, trimmed her double chin, hands and arms, and removed the bags under her eyes.
