There is always room for improvement, even when it comes to famous pieces of art. The concept behind this inspirational project was to take an original idea and remake a classic work of art putting "all your creative energy into re-creating and re-staging the image." No Photoshop allowed! The renditions here are all creative and very accurate in detail, and they succeed amazingly in re-capturing the spirit of the famous painting. They all certainly breathe new life into these well known masterpieces and some of them are also quite hilarious. Take a browse through the re-created works of art below and I guarantee you definitely won't find these classic masterpiece paintings boring!
