Two Bored Coworkers Recreate Famous Paintings Using Their Office Supplies

If you’re bored at the office and don’t know what to do (besides work, ugh), Chris Limbrick and Francesco Fragomeni have got you covered. These two (clearly very busy) workers at Squarespace in NY spend their free time recreating famous paintings using whatever they find in their office for a project they’ve called “Fools Do Art.”

There are two simple rules they follow – 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!
