Museumgoer uses FaceApp to put smiles on the faces of artistic masterpieces
A trip to the museum never looked so cheerful.
Olly Gibbs, or @Ollyog as he’s known on Twitter, took a visit to his local museum and took pictures of several paintings using FaceApp. One of the popular features on FaceApp is a toothy smile filter that users can put on any photo.
“Went to a museum armed with Face App to brighten up a lot of the sombre looks on the paintings and sculptures,” Gibbs wrote on Twitter.
Subjects in these paintings and sculptures have their dour frowns transformed into hilariously goofy grins. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
When he isn’t playing jokes on artistic masterpieces, Gibbs finds other ways to brighten the world around him. He is currently raising money for the charity Dogs for Good by taking park in a 100km walk in Brighton, U.K.
Dogs For Good is a nonprofit that trains assistance dogs to assist people with physical difficulties as well as people with autism. Gibbs has a sponsorship page for people to donate to his walk.
“If my photos made people smile, how about they make others smile by helping them by donating to change lives,” Gibbs wrote to Travel + Leisure.
