Have you ever been to an art museum, bored out of your mind? Or let’s say you love classic art – do you regularly listen to rap hits too? They seem counterintuitive, but Fly Art Production’s Instagram account is proving us all wrong.

Their bio keeps it simple: “Rap lyrics on paintings.”  Yet, such a simple concept mixed with stunning typography makes for a really awesome project. They even sell prints and t-shirts, so the art & hip hop lover in you can own all the Rap x Art merch your heart desires.

Here are some of our favorites.
