Earlier this year the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles asked their followers to recreate popular paintings with everyday objects, and the challenge took the world by storm. People from all over the world tried to find the most unique approach to recreate iconic paintings and Liza Yukhnyova was one of them.
Yukhnyova is very passionate about art and has a degree in art history, so she became extremely dedicated to this project. Her initial plan was to participate in the challenge for 30 days. However, she ended up having so much fun that she extended the project for an entire year.
“One of my goals is enlightening people when they compare my photos with paintings. I want to highlight great paintings from different cultural traditions and show people that they are much closer to them than it seems. My replicas encourage everyone to look at the paintings in detail, I think it’s important,” she to My Modern Met.
So far Liza has recreated more than 150 paintings from different areas and genres and it seem like she’s getting better at it every day. It’s important to mention that all of her creations are made entirely with simple household items, and without the use of Photoshop, so Yukhnyova has to be very creative to stay on top of her game.
