Since 2010, Jon Rafman has been digitally reimagining objects and settings in the styles of famous artists for a tumblr blog called Brand New Paint Job. (See the Edward Hopper Buick Station Wagon and the Franz Kline Starbucks).

Here, he gives the Oval Office a new paint job in the style of Jasper Johns, borrowing heavily from "Three Flags."
