Booooooom’s Remake Project

As you may or may not have known, (I have read a great post about this from our friends at The Ludlow Group.) for the past few weeks Booooooom was holding a contest asking for modern interpretations of iconic artwork, called Remake Project. And Holy-Moly!!! The submissions are incredible. I’m blown away at the drama, humor and depth. The finalists have been announced and can be viewed here.  But all of the submissions are a must-see!

  1. You picked some amazing examples! It was so hard for us to only pick a few because all the submissions were so wonderful. I love this project and wish I could have been a part of it, maybe next time. And thanks for including us in your post!

    Personal favorite was definitely the remake of Gustave Courbet’s Le Désespéré
