Well, I suppose it was only a matter of time before the world's most expensive painting would be taken hostage by so-called 'crypto-artists'.

Artnet.com have published a short article on the new work of Hansen Wang entitled 'The Greats', which sees Leonardo's work transformed into several styles inspired by famous artists.

Big institutions are also pilling on the NFT bandwagon, with the British Museum being the latest to announce it will be selling digital postcards of works by the likes of Hokusai.

Of course, if you want a 'digital work of art' for display at home, I recommend heading over to Google Images and using the right-click button of your mouse to download your very own JPEG. There we are!
