Internet Memes Get Turned Into Pop Art That You Can Buy

Crying woman meme

Ever looked at Nyan Cat and think, “Man, this would make for an awesome painting hanging on my wall.” Some people have, and now thanks to California-based Gallery 1988, internet memes are getting the pop art treatment.

The art gallery features work from various artists who are selling paintings and framed prints all inspired by popular internet memes. Everything from “First World Problems” (above) to “Hipster Ariel,” a take on trendy Disney princesses, have gotten an artistic pop-art makeover, turning memes into collector’s items.
