Korean illustrator and graphic artist Kim Dong-Kyu has begun modernizing vintage paintings by infusing them with 21st-century technology for his latest project entitled Art x Smart.

Besides simply looking cool and interesting, Kim Dong-Kyu's 'Art x Smart' is able to completely change the feel of these great works by adding an iPhone here and an iPad there. Suddenly, a piece that was once majestic and awe-inspiring becomes frustratingly annoying -- "put down the phone and enjoy the view!" you want to yell.

'Art x Smart' is a great critique on our modern times and the emotions these paintings can elicit in ourselves show us how we truly feel about the way technology has permeated our society. Stats for Media-Infused Masterpieces Trending: Older & Buzzing
