Don’t think that art critique is boring! Olga Tolstunova smashes that myth to pieces with elegance and style: on her Instagram account, she recreates masterpieces from all around the world and educates her audience with interesting facts and neat details. Even if you don’t care about art history, you’ll probably find yourself drawn in by the sheer passion and beauty in these “cosplays.”

We at Enlighten were awestruck by Olga’s work, so we collected paintings-brought-to-life that impressed us the most to share with you.
