This Student's Fascinating Instagram Project Compares Young Thug and Classic Paintings news

One student has taken a project at school to a whole new level by comparing Young Thug‘s many poses to famous works of art of people in similar positions.

In one picture, Thug can be seen holding his foot in a store for a light stretch, which looks just like a woman checking out her feet After the Bath in an 1875 painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. Another highlight calls back to Thug’s mood at Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show at Madison Square Garden and juxtaposes it to the Vision of St Helena looking equally as bored/tired/over it in Paolo Veronese’s famous painting. There is also an incredible juxtaposition between a self portrait of Frida Kahlo next to a throwback of Thug ​rolling around the airport in a wheelchair snacking on Nilla wafers.

Of course, the anonymous student couldn’t help but also draw similarities between that time Thug rode around on a horse to announce his new tour and a very regal portait of Prince Charles of Prussia on his horse.

“This is literally my school project,” he notes in the Instagram bio. We can’t really imagine a better way to earn credit in class than analyzing the art of Young Thug. Both the person behind the account and Young Thug did not immediately return Complex’s request for comment, but we’ll keep you posted as we uncover for more. For now, check out some of the standout posts below or you can look at all of them here.
