By make and model
Freddy Fabris receives inspiration in some strange places, including garages.
He entered a shop and immediately came up with a great idea -- recreate Renaissance-era paintings and portraits, but with mechanics.
The resulting photos you see here, "The Renaissance Series," have garnered much critical acclaim, earning Fabris several awards for his efforts.
As you can see, these are some spot-on recreations.
The juxtaposition of modern and classic lend these serious shots humor.
Fabris is currently exhibiting this series in several galleries around the world, including Vogelsang Gallery in Brussels, Urbane Art Gallery in Edinburgh and Art Wynwood Miami.
Born to two dancers and choreographers, Fabris has always been close to art.
Anybody else tempted to get a print to hang up at home, or is it just me?
You can order limited-edition prints of this series right from Fabris' own website.
Fabris' "Renaissance Series" has been featured in a number of online publications, including Popular Mechanics and Fotolia.
If I were a rich man, which I am not, I'd commission him for another dozen of these.
I don't know how he did it, but he managed to hire a number of mechanics that look right at home in Renaissance paintings. Impressive.
