I want to actualize great paintings from different cultures to show people that it’s much closer than it seems. I really love art, admiring beauty, and talent My intend was to encourage everyone by my Replicas. I want everyone to look at paintings in detail. it’s important to understand the Beauty of Art.
So, I started to imitate pieces of art for the #gettychallenge.
I decided to do it daily for 30 days, I’m still continuing and now I am on my day 130. I have recreated Middle Eastern galleries, ancient, Indian, Red Cross posters.
I do everything on my own: makeup, costumes, lighting And shooting With my phone’s camera, it’s really fun doing all things on my own using very simple stuffs which surround me at home.
#1 Ilya Repin “Princess Sofia” (1879)
My expression in the painting looks like I’m ready to steal your candy or The Whole Russian Empire. LOL
#2 John Collier “Priestess Of Delphi” (1891)
#3 Konstantin Makovsky In The Russian Costume” (1900)
I Created this crown from 2 eastern hats, piece of golden lace and necklace.
#4 Caravaggio “Judith Beheading Holofernes” (1599)
I didn’t deliberately give this angry expression. I saw on the right someone pondering the artistic merit of the flower bouquet she just arranged.
#5 Tito Conti “An Italian Beauty” (~1880)
In this i assemble the stuffs to reassemble the Look and strong resemblance.
#6 John Everett Millais “Sophie Gray” (1857)
I think painter has made her blush too much. And that’s why this painting looks more Beautiful.
