This project takes found art—and living art—to the next level.
Fools Do Art is the brainchild of Francesco Fragomeni and Chris Limbrick, two co-workers at Squarespace. One day they decided to recreate a well-known work of art using just the objects they had around them, and the rest is history. Each photo since has gotten more and more elaborate and creative. No masterpiece is off-limits—they’ve tackled subjects from Frida Kahlo to Napoleon to the Mona Lisa.
Here are the rules, according to their website:
1. All props must be things found in the office
2. All editing must be done on a phone, Android or iPhone.
