@YoungThugAsPaintings is the best Instagram account in the game.

A rapper who defies every convention, Young Thug served as the inspiration for the hottest Instagram account in the game: @YoungThugAsPaintings. The page puts photos of Young Thug alongside paintings that use a similar composition. Priceless works of art referenced in the account include paintings by some of the most famed painters of the last 500 years, including El Greco, Caravaggio, and Norman Rockwell. Highlights include Thugger sitting in a wheelchair while munching on some Nilla wafers compared to a Frida Kahlo self-portrait.

The page is curated by an anonymous art history student. "Literally my school project," the account bio states.
