Recreating famous artworks is not something we haven’t seen in the past. A couple of years back, photographer Inge Prader recreated a few paintings from Gustav Klimt using real models in order to raise funds for HIV/AIDS. This time ELLE Brazil used famous figures of the country to recreate various famous artworks including Mona Lisa. Also, Adobe along with website boooooom.com created a project, where they invited anyone who was interested to recreate any painting they liked and send their results. In both projects, the results were more than satisfying, showing how great people can work when they want to show their respect to famous pieces of art.
ELLE Brazil: Sandro Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.
ELLE Brazil: Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
ELLE Brazil: Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss.
ELLE Brazil: Edvard Munch’s The Scream.
ELLE Brazil: David Hockney’s Joiners.
ADOBE: Vincent Van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles.
ADOBE: Grant Wood’s American Gothic.
ADOBE: Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory.
You don’t need to be an artist yourself in order to be able to understand the meaning of a painting and how you can bring it into this day and transform it into something new.
