About @punk_history

For centuries, art has served as a very serious reflection of the state of the world, with each important event brought to life with the stroke of a paintbrush. Or, you know, a few thousand strokes. With all due respect to the masters, Punk History has a different M.O. This Instagram account is all about annotating old school, Renaissance-style art with modern commentary. To put it frankly, Punk History puts funny captions on the classics. Now with 16k+ followers, Punk History posts daily images that poke fun at the millennial mentality and society-at-largeā€”but credit is always given to the artist of the original work.

@punk_history's best work on social
