Fine-art paintings of Internet memes

It used to be that oil painting was reserved for subjects presumed to have great lasting import, like Biblical scenes and heads of state.

Every so often media blends itself up in a weirdly inspired way to produce a totally new genre. This might be one of those occasions: Czech artist Jeremiah Palecek has made a name for himself painting fine-art renditions of notable Internet video memes. Yes, he's got the dramatic chipmunk, the raver Viking, and the German kid going nuts. Don't see your favorite? He takes requests, too.

Thanks to Boing Boing for the heads-up: "Oil paintings inspired by Internet memes"
