Workers Re-Create Famous Paintings Using Office Supplies


Following on from previous remakes of famous paintings we’ve featured (here and here), we couldn’t go passed bored office coworkers Chris Limbrick and Francesco Fragomeni whose remakes were completed using whatever they could find in their office!

The project is called “Fools Do Art”, and they followed two simple rules – only use stuff found in the office, and any editing must be done on their smart phones. Given those limitations, they’ve done an amazing job!
