Some Genius Transformed Your Favorite Memes Into Fine Art

Just when you thought nothing could have you rolling the way a good meme does, Afro-surrealist artist Alim Smith turned all your fave faces into fine art.

From the timeless images of a teary-eyed Michael Jordan to the face of a confused Nick Young, Smith uses surrealism to exaggerate the hilarity of these folks.

Based in Delaware, Smith who derives inspiration from black popular culture in his artwork began posting these images in homage to what he refers to as Black Meme History Month.

Check out some of Smiths brilliant creations below:
