A group of talented film makers and artists from Tate Collective used GIFS to give a modern twist to paintings dated from the 1840s to the 1890s which were housed in Tate Britain.

Tate Collective artists organise events and create their own work for the events at the world-famous gallery.

Italian experimental artist and animator Rino Stefano Tagliafierro also use GIFS to bring paintings to life.
