This Woman Recreates One Famous Classic Painting a Day for a Year, Brings Progress to Another Level

Ilya Repin “Princess Sofia Alekseyevna” (1879)

Liza Yukhnyova from Saint Petersburg, Russia, perfectly gets into characters of famous masterpieces. Her mastery does not look like entertainment but claims to be called art.

According to an artist: “I really love art, admiring beauty and talent. I want to actualize great painting from different cultural traditions to show people that it is much closer than it seems. My replicas encourage everyone to look at the paintings in detail. I think it’s important.

I started to imitate pieces of art for the #gettychallenge. At the beginning, I decided to do it daily for 30 days, but at the end of this period, I couldn’t stop. I’m still continuing and now I am on day 130. I have recreated Middle Eastern galleries, ancient, Indian, Red Cross posters, and others.

I do everything on my own: makeup, costumes, lighting with a table lamp, and shooting just with my phone’s camera, using very simple things which surround me at home.”
