18th Century Portraits Improved By SMS Speak

With an interest in contemporary methods of communication, painter Shawn Huckins brings SMS speak to traditional art in a way that may remind of a bit of Ed Ruscha. Or, perhaps even Barbara Kruger. But, really, it is a thing all of its own. Huckins takes some of the most famous figures of the 1700s and tells us just what they are thinking through LOL-isms and other concise language. Funny.
