Art might imitate life, but there are some people who absolutely adore doing the opposite and decide to imitate art. In astonishing detail! One of these incredibly creative individuals is Liza Yukhnyova, an artist from Saint Petersburg in Russia who recreates famous paintings daily.

She takes the high road and does things the hard, old-fashioned way, without any digital mumbo-jumbo. Liza does everything by herself, from the gorgeous and realistic costumes to the makeup and historic hairstyles.

Check out some of the artist’s latest intricate art recreations below, upvote your favorite ones, and be sure to let us know which ones you loved the most and why. If you love Liza’s recreations as much as we do, then be sure to follow her Instagram for her latest updates. And when you’re done with this list, check out Liza’s earlier feature on Bored Panda right here.

For Liza, art is a true, all-encompassing passion. Earlier, she explained that she loves admiring beauty and talent, so she wanted to bring well-known paintings into people’s lives so that they can feel the same way that she does.

What’s more, she hopes that her detailed recreations will inspire people to take a closer peek at paintings and notice all the small but important details hidden throughout. Not to mention the fact that Liza can make art seem like a lot of fun to some people who aren’t big on going to galleries and museums.

#5 Frederic Bazille “Young Woman With Lowered Eyes” (1869)

Originally, what inspired Liza to post her recreations was the LA-based Getty Museum challenge which we’ve written about before. In short, art lovers from all around the globe had a friendly competition to see who’d be best at recreating art masterpieces with the things they found lying around their homes.

Meanwhile, the Getty challenge itself was inspired by the Dutch Instagram account Tussen Kunst en Quarantaine. So you can see what a long chain of artistic inspiration led Liza to grab the internet’s attention with her own photos.

#8 Vasily Surikov “The Head Of A Laughing Girl” (1890)

#9 Saturnino Herrán “Creole With Shawls” (1915)

Two other things that have astonished us a lot are the artist’s incredible discipline and dedication to her project. At first, Liza only intended to do the daily recreations for 30 days.

However, she’s been going strong ever since! Now that’s the kind of sustained passion that any creative would love to have, whether they’re a photographer, painter, or writer. In that time, Liza’s recreated a vast archive of art, from ancient paintings to some of the more exotic art found in regions like the Middle East and India.

#10 William Holman Hunt “The Bride Of Bethlehem” (1884)

#11 Firs Zhuravlev “After The Marriage” (1874)

The entire project is a one-woman show. Liza does everything by herself, including the costumes and makeup. She styles her hair herself, uses a table lamp for lighting, and takes professional-quality photos using just her phone camera.

She’s also very resourceful in how she uses props. The artist uses everything and anything she finds at home to make the photos come alive. With nearly 6k followers on Instagram at the time of writing and growing, we see great things for the artist in the future.
