Auto Mechanics Help Recreate Famous Renaissance Paintings


Talented photographer Freddy Fabris has recreated several world-famous Renaissance paintings with auto mechanics.

Blending two worlds that seemingly would never meet, considering automobiles didn’t exist during the Renaissance period, Fabris enlisted the help of an old Midwest car shop to translate painting into photography.

“For many years, I wanted to pay homage the great Renaissance masters,” explained Fabris on Huffington Post. “Translating painting into photography was a challenge I looked forward to. I wanted to respect the look and feel of the originals, 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.

For inspiration, the photographer selected a few famous works of art including The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, The Anatomy Lesson by Rembrandt and The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo. He then expanded the series with portraits inspired by Rembrandt.
