Chris and Francesco have a lot of time as well as limitless supply of creativity and imagination on their hands. So they come up with ideas to while away the time at their Squarespace office in NYC.
There are just two rules:
- All props must be things found in the office
- All editing must be done on a phone
Apparently too board at work, they started a creative project called ‘Fools Do Art’ challenging each other to recreate famous artworks with miscellaneous items found in their office.
From Mona Lisa to the The Girl with the Pearl Earring and The Son of Man, there are numerous classics that have being recreated-read victimized- by them.
Here they are:
"The Son of Man," Rene Magritte, 1964
"The Girl with the Pearl Earring" Johannes Vermeer, 1665
"Napoleon Crossing the Alps" by Jacqeus-Louis David.
"The Nightmare," Henry Fuseli, 1781
"Two Ballet Dancers" Edgar Degas, 1879
"Blonde Beauty," Walt Otto, circa 1950's
"Lady and the Unicorn: Sight" Circa 1500
"Portrait of a Man in a Turban" Jan van Eyck, 1433
"Mona Lisa" Leonardo da Vinci, 1503-1506
"Thinking About Death" Frida Kahlo, 1943
