Recreated classic paintings from office supplies, you don’t see those every day. While bored at work, co-workers Francesco Fragomeni and Chris Limbrick decided to create a fun activity. Using only equipment in their office, they began to recreate a famous painting known as, “Creation of Adam” made by Michelangelo. Happy with how it turned out, they decided to make 17 recreated classic paintings. It is truly amazing the high calibre of art that can be created using the most basic of tools.

There project, known as “Fools Do Art”, grew into a fun and creative project for the two. Other co-workers decided to join in to recreate classic paintings. They are recreating painting from such famous artists like Frida, Kahlo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Johannes Vermeer and many more.

They are now accepting idea submissions from people all over the world. To take part simply follow their two strict rules: it must be made exclusively using things found in the office, and any photo manipulations, if needed, must be made on a smart phone.
