Classic Art Reworked With Playmobil

playmobil4.jpg

"Here we see the artist create a commentary on the classic art scene by replacing the subjects of familiar works with the static figures of children's Playmobil characters" is what we imagine the plaque would read at an exhibition of Pierre-Adrien Sollier's work. 

The French painter's unique collection of work takes the recognisable high works of Georges Seurat and Da Vinci, playing with their style in a charming-yet-childish fashion. While we imagine the blocky Playmobil characters make for easier subjects to paint than real life human figures, Sollier's paintings are remarkably detailed. 

Perfect for high brow nurseries and counterculture galleries, you can see more of Sollier's work on his website
