Hipster Statues: This Artist Turns Stone Sculptures Into Trendy Millennials

Antique meets Avocado-Loving-Hipster

LOL #Trendy: 8/10

Weve seen paintings re-imagined as hipsters, but what if antique stone statues starting picking up on the trend too?

What if the ancient greek gods started wearing rolled-up capris and plaid shirts or the goddesses sported lace bralets and skater dresses and crop tops?

Artist and photographer L矇o Caillard has come up with a series of hipster statues – featuring famous statues of the Louvre museum in modern-day clothes.

Turning gods into good ol Instagram stars, the playful series features everything from denim button-downs to selfie-taking shades-bearing characters. Intriguingly enough, it all fits very, very well.

Taken from Caillards Hipsters in Stone series I and series II, take a look through these hipster statues below, and find your OOTD inspiration.
