You’re probably familiar with a lot of these famous Western art masterpieces, but probably not like this!

It started when booooom.com partnered with Adobe to create the Remake project, which asked art students to recreate classic paintings into something else using photography.

Here’s our favourite 20 of the remakes, including a couple of extras that we found on the interwebs and had to include here. What is your favorite?
