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.

You've caught her expression perfectly - and her stance, her attitude. It's a bit spooky!

Good grief critics...she cannot change her face...look at the details, the look in the whole, not the face. You are expecting the impossible. This is art. Artistic liberty-ever hear of it?

You are utterly AMAZING!!!! Is there a place where we can read about what all went into this for you? I am fascinated by your process of finding all of your items and recreating the art.
