If video games invaded famous paintings

Are video games art? Well, one could argu... screw that. We're not even going to attempt to enter that minefield. Clearly, though, with a bunch of concept drawings from the likes of Dante's Inferno and Jet Set Radiobeing framed and displayed in a swanky San Francisco hotelthis week, some people think they are.

And that got us thinking. What if some of the greatest works of art ever had video game characters crow-barred into them? The answer: they'd become 92.1% more awesome. Obviously. So here, for your artistic perusal, we present our twisted takes on the Mona Lisa, Starry Night, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte and American Gothic.

Update: We've added more mashed-up paintings on page 2.
