Russian Artist Creates Breathtaking Paintings Featuring ‘Pepe The Frog’ Meme

At some point in our internet history, we all saw one or two memes of Pepe the Frog, if not more. Despite its popularity, the frog is yet a controversial internet meme. After all, we might not agree totally with the views Pepe represents, but we all wonder what he would look like in the style of the Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci.

The character of Pepe – the frog with the humanoid body originates from a comic by Matt Furie called Boy’s Club.
