Published 6 years ago

Vugar Efendi is a 23 years old writer and director. In his portfolio, he says he grew up in various countries surrounded by their rich cultures, such as United Kingdom, Spain, Turkey, and Ukraine. Vugar received a lot of attention online after he uploaded his incredible three-part ‘Film Meets Art‘ videos that compare classical paintings and iconic movie scenes. While some of these recreations are undoubtedly intentional, others might be only inspired by the paintings.

Vugar’s side by side comparisons reveal a very unique side of art, he shows the way modern directors can bring iconic pieces to life in their movies, proving the undeniable connection between different forms of art. Scroll down to see the comparisons yourself.
