“To pay homage to the original paintings while offering art lovers an additional reason to smile.” Ed Wheeler carries with him a bagful of laughter. Lighten up the holidays by looking at his photos of funny Santa in classical paintings. It has been so many years when he started dressing up like Santa but it was in 2011 when he thought of taking this special Christmas project to a higher level. So he did – which paved the way to a series of hilarious Santa poses in the most popular paintings of the best artists in the history.
From Boticelli’s “the Birth of Venus” down to those paintings that most art lovers can churn away the title right there and then, Wheeler just gives away his natural wits to give all the viewers a real HAHAHA moment this season. My favorite has to be Degas’! Well, I do love sunflowers and I kind of have this secret dream of being great at ballet (but to no avail). But, what makes it stand out for me is this funny moment of photo-bombing around and making all these really daring yet funny poses and positions. What could be more than a really happy Christmas, right?
Are you also a funny fellow? Do you want to make others laugh and giggle? Well, take this hilarious Wheeler as your inspiration! For one by one, perhaps what the world truly needs now are those who dare to make others let go and just ride on to beautiful silliness. Merry Christmas!
