We’ve featured some great remakes of classic paintings in the past (see here), but never before have we seen it from some car mechanics!

That’s what Freddy Fabris did to get a unique twist on the works of Renaissance painters. The mechanics, clad in overalls and tools in hand, posed in an auto-shop. The results are brilliant and instantly recognizable.

“For many years I wanted to pay homage the great Renaissance masters,” Fabris wrote on Huffington Post.“Translating painting into photography was a challenge I looked forward to. I wanted to respect the look and feel of theoriginals, but needed to come up with a conceptual twist that would create a new layer to the original. To take them out of their original context, yet maintain their essence.”
