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.
