I'm following Tussen Kunst AKA between art and quarantine: a hashtag, a movement, and a creative reflection of our current situation.
Following Tussen Kunst: Between Art and Quarantine
The original brief was to pick a piece of artwork and use 3 items in your home to recreate it. The idea took off and the "Getty Museum Challenge" amplified the participants. As you can see from the examples below, many creators are going all out and throwing that three item suggestion to the wind. To acheive brilliant results.
Woman in Biscuits is a recreation from Gustav Klimt's Woman in Gold by Julia Timoshkova. This is the one image that I can't find a source for the original creator. I especially love the sheer volume of snacks that Julia has surrounded herself with.
Pablo Picasso was one of my earliest favorites. His powerful, gigantic mural Guernica about the horrors of war is recreated by Enfants autour du monde. For some reason this versoin looks like. a family battle, while still staying faithful to the composition and feeling of the original.
Marina Abramović's Imponderabilia by Chris Steiner
Another Picasso favorite is Girl with Mandolin recreated by Stephanie Williams creativly using toilet paper squares to emulate the cubist look.
Frieda Khalo's painting Tea and Smokes redone with the cigarette and cup being replaced by toilet paper. and grain. A clever take by KSU Colorist.
And the image that inspired this post, this rendition of The Garden of Earthly Delights by HieronymusBosch. This photograph by Ksenia Krondo makes me ridiculously happy with their commitment to the surrealist masterpiece. Seriously though the commitment her is outstanding. The birds on the wall. The cat replacing the odd long legged furry creature.
