The world has been “asleep” for already a year now but let’s admit it’s too hard to get used to it. When J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles closed because of the spread of COVID-19, it also finds an alternative to keep people engaged with art and be entertained at the same time. So the museum created a challenge for its social media followers and encouraged them to recreate renowned art with ordinary things at hand and share on their accounts.
One of the participants, Liza Yukhnyova got carried away and liked the idea of spreading art in this way so much that she decided to expand the challenge to one year and post her interpretation of best-known paintings daily and show her creativity.
Liza has a degree in art history and it’s obvious where this enthusiasm comes from. She creates the costumes, hairstyles, and makeup by herself and doesn’t use Photoshop to get the wanted result, and since she uses everything she has at home she really needs to get creative, and we think she surely does.

… and post her interpretation of best-known paintings daily and show her creativity.
At first, when Liza started this project she thought about posting daily for 30 days then she really fell in love with what she was doing and decided to continue because she realized her replicas encouraged people to look at paintings in detail and brought them closer to art itself.
