Digital Artist Photoshops His Father into Famous Paintings

Matt Bonito is a digital artist who shares a special bond with his father Dom. The two often hang out together and enjoy various activities such as creating amusing content for social media that sees Matt photoshopping Dom into famous paintings. 

Matt recently decided to share a series of amusing Photoshop interventions that have his father as the main star of iconic artworks like Cassius Marcellus Coolidge’s “Dogs Playing Poker,” Edvard Munch’s “Scream,” and Jacques-Louis David’s “The Death of Marat.” While this is already entertaining, Dom manages to make each work even funnier thanks to his mannerisms and clothes. He always wears the same sweater and cap while adjusting his body talk to the theme of the painting.

Matt’s Photoshop interventions starring his dad are nothing new. He has been doing them for the past several years, choosing different sources of inspiration like pop culture, movies, and TV shows. For him, it’s less about the final product and more about quality time spent with his dad.

“We can spend hours sat laughing around the dinner table while we come up with ideas, and it’s never a bad thing to have an excuse to hang out with him,” Bonito revealed in a recent interview. “I also just love the creativity of it all.”
