New York-based artist Aja created these hilarious and timely paintings, which are re-creations of infamous Internet meme stars such as Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub.

The talented artist has immortalized Internet sensation Grumpy Cat in the classic Van Gogh painting 'A Starry Night.' Meanwhile, the internationally adored Lil Bub is depicted in Edvard Munch's classic 'The Scream.' In another painting, Grumpy Cat is pictured in front of a beautiful rainbow-colored sunset, yet his expression still remains glum.

Featured on Etsy, these eye-catching paintings are able to grab people's attention by tapping into popular internet meme culture. What better way to showcase these Internet sensations than by re-creating their images through classic pieces of artwork?
