Classic Paintings + Snakes = Awesome

That’s the artistic formula of Australian artist Bill Flowers, the self-proclaimed Snake Artist:

“I love snakes, and a few other humans on this planet also love snakes. Sadly there are so many humans that do not. I painted this series to make people smile. Smiling is a positive thing. If I can get humans to have a nice fun feeling while looking at snakes, my job is done.”

Flowers has chosen a perfectly accurate title for himself. He doesn’t just paint snakes into classic works of art. Before doing that he goes out into the wild and sketches them, up close, very close. Many would say too close, including the snakes themselves:

From the mythological figures in Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus and the iconic melting clocks in Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory to the swirling heavens in van Gogh’s The Starry Night and the relaxing Parisians in Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, they’ve all been replaced with snakes, lots of snakes. Meanwhile the Mona Lisa, Whistler’s Mother, and the farmer couple from American Gothic have each been turned into snake handlers. He also created the latest addition to our collection of The Last Supper parodies:
