Artist Reimagines Famous Paintings as Pugs

Yuliia Ustymenko describes herself as an artist specializing in oil paintings who has a huge love for pugs. In her series called Great Pugs, she mixes her two passions to create art.

“I take famous portraits and turn the main characters into pugs,” the artist shared with Bored Panda. For me, this is an opportunity to pay tribute to the great masters and an attempt to look at the famous masterpieces from another angle. New times call for new heroes, but masterpieces are unrivaled.”

Her Great Pugs collection consists of about twenty pieces of art. Many of her creations are in private collections, while some of her portraits are still looking for their home.
