Artist Shusaku Takaoka – know better by his Instagram handle, shusaku1977 – expertly pulls together classic art, modern cinema, and cultural fads to create magnificent pop culture mashups. Takaoka's clever spins on famous movie scenes, paintings, and advertisements create new ways of viewing these timeless images while still recalling the spark that made them so compelling in the first place.
Much like nerd mashup artwork, shusaku1977's pop art combines one favorite with another in a fashion you likely never expected. Who knew Vermeer went so well with Pulp Fiction, Pharrell, and even paparazzi shots? Shusaku1977, that's who, and the internet is forever better because of his work.
