This Artist Recreated A Famous Classical Painting Every Day For 53 Days

Published 4 years ago

Liza Yukhnyova is a Saint Petersburg-based art lover who accepted the #GettyChallenge at the beginning of the quarantine and has been recreating famous classical paintings daily since! Initially, the woman only planned to continue the challenge for 30 days but she is currently on day 142 and it doesn’t look like she plans on stopping anytime soon.

Liza recreates the paintings using only the objects she has at home, does all of her makeup herself, and prides herself in not using any editing apps to alter the images. During these months of quarantine, she recreated numerous paintings of famous artists, ranging from Da Vinci to Ilya Repin – check out some of Liza’s amazing art recreations in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
