One of the first images to greet visitors is a battered and bruised Mona Lisa looking much the worse for wear. But no great masterpiece has been spared the humorous reinterpretation of the Barcelona born artist in what he describes as "The Hidden History of Art".
From Munch's The Scream to Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam, 42 year old Rafael Andres has taken liberties with iconic images throughout the ages. The surreal collection can be viewed daily at the restaurant in Soi Piphat 2, off Soi Convent, in Silom. Eat Me restaurant has a long history of deliverig wide ranging art exhibitions, and Cryptoart will be displayed until June 29th, 2012.
