Auto Mechanics Recreate Renaissance Paintings

Photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the Renaissance masters with his photos in some way, but he wasn’t sure how until he stumbled upon an auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest. This led to a brilliant series of funny portraits with auto mechanics.

    So I’m happy to recognize the historic pictures that these poses represent, but not all of them. Would the photographer put in the titles of pictures represented. Rick L.

    Click on the artist’s name & go to his web site. You will see the name of the Renaissance picture these are imitating. The single photos are merely portraits in the renaissance style & the others are still life. The first photo is ‘The Creation of Adam’, ‘The Last Supper’, the last one is ‘The Anatomy Lesson’. Well Done!

    Too cool, well done, actually beautiful Art. The shadows and the poses. I wonder though, do these guys get much done? How will they celebrate their fame?

    One guy there is not a mechanic–he/she is an artist

    Freddy may not be a mechanic, but he is a great artist. The lighting is perfect.

    Wonderful photography/lighting/posing of these Auto Mechanics depicting the Renaissance work of arts, very cleverly done, I liked the Last Supper with their Hamburger, Chips & Noodles :)
