The Edge of the Canvas features six famous works given a modern twist that extends their canvas further

O2 has commissioned two artists for a series that explores beyond the edge of famous artworks, showing what they could look like if the canvases had a larger surface area. Marking the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone, The Edge of the Canvas modernizes and subverts masterpieces including Van Gogh’s Self Portrait and Edvard Munch’s The Scream.

The pieces show what is happening outside the original work of art, just like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge lets users go beyond the edge with its extended screen. Urban artist Pure Evil and fine artist Paul Karslake were commissioned to reimagine six classic paintings and give them a modern twist, using their own distinct styles to explore what could be happening on the edge of the original artworks.
