The Getty Museum has put out a new challenge to test your goofy remixing levels.
Pushing quarantined followers to creatively use time at home, the company announced an artwork recreation game for viewers old and new. In three steps, here’s how it works:
> Pick a painting you like
> Find three household items
> Remake the painting using those objects
You can star in these paintings, or pull in your partners, children and pets for company. Getty’s advice? Pay attention to your expressions (we’ve got hefty mirror time now anyway), and think about lighting (is it natural? Artificial? What direction is it coming from?).

The Museum’s single tweet has spurred a hotbed of artistic activity, as scores of funny submissions pour in. Naturally, landscape shots are on the lower end, with most sticking to portraits. The more ambitious, though, are recreating fields of flowers, religious art and even the abstract, cubed canvases of Piet Mondrian. On Getty’s advice, some have also ventured into edible art.
Here’s some of our favourites:
As thousands tune in to see the remakes, the challenge has proven highly educational. Besides the delightful comedy, viewers are being breezily taught about lesser-known painters, art movements such as Fauvism, Impressionism and Modernism, and how to best channel the DIY spirit. If you ask us, it’s certainly more constructive than learning how to dye your hair with a vegetable or making a coffee cup corset.
Dutch Instagram Tussen Kunst & Quarantaine (‘Between Art & Quarantine’) is the original handle behind this idea, which Getty acknowledged in a later post. But we’re yet to see remakes of Indian folk art online—think you have what it takes?
