Amazing Artist Gifs

We imagine that if the gif existed during the time of the great painters, they'd have been making them left, right and centre.

And gif-maker extraordinaire ABVH has taken these portraits of famous artists and transformed them into gifs, according to the style of their work. Thus Salvador Dalí's surrealism is vividly brought to life, and Van Gogh's stern image is given flourishes of colour and impressionist brushstrokes.

Check out the five stunning gifs below and be sure to view more of ABVH's work at his tumblr.
