Remaking Favorite Art Works

by Hrag Vartanian on December 20, 2011

Booooooom invited their readers to recreate their favorite paintings or photos using photography. The results are pretty creative. The recreations of Surrealist art are particularly fascinating since seeing them IRL makes them feel more demented.

Chris of Colossal has his own picks from the submissions. And you can vote for your favorite on Booooooom’s Facebook page here.

Top to bottom: (all via booooooom.com) Frida Kahlo's "The Two Fridas” (1930) remade by Claire Ball, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres's “Grande Odalisque” (1814) remade by Craig White, Rene Magritte's “The Murderer Threatened” (1926) remade by Natalie Pereira, Otto Dix's “Portrait of Sylvia Von Harden” (1926) remade by Stephan Hoffman & SoYeon Kim.
