50 Fantastic Remakes of Famous Artworks (Not Featured In Our Book)

This summer we released our first-ever Booooooom book, “Remake”, chronicling our massive art project in which people all over the world re-created master works of art. Thank you to all the publications that have written about the book, the response has been unreal.

I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight a selection of the incredible submissions that did not end up in the final version of the book. In a perfect world, everyone’s work would have been printed in the book but I simply did not have the budget to secure image rights to all the original master works of art to be able to include everything (this was very painful for me during the editing process). I actually gave up my entire book advance from Chronicle Books to get the rights to as many works as I could.

Below are 50 terrific submissions to our remake project, none of which you will see as you flip through the book. Note: I arbitrarily picked the number 50 for this article; this list could probably be twice as long.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project, I am convinced that we have the most talented (and active) creative community on the Internet. Have a look at the works below.

    I don´t Know if i Submitted something for that book. I guess not. But better late than never. Here is my “remake” of “Leda Atómica” by Dalí and ” Dalí Atomicus” by Philippe Halsman. My version is called “Chispa Atómica”. Chispa is spanish for Spark or Sparkle and thats how we call my friend in the picture because of her hair. Translated would be “Atomic Spark”. It was perfect as she was pregnant and about to Explode with Life !!

Ticket Giveaway: Canal180’s 8-Day Creative Camp in Portugal

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants. It’ll be my first time to Portugal so I’m looking forward to exploring Abrantes as well.

Tickets are still available! Also if you happen to live in Abrantes I believe there are special terms for you to participate. Head over to 180.camp for more info and to see the list of speakers and workshops announced so far (more on the way).

Now for the really good news, we have a full package ticket (350 € value) to give away to one of you, which includes participation in the 8-day camp, accommodations and food. All you have to do is share a link to your website or Instagram in the comments below. Click the link below and scroll down to the bottom of this post and use the Disqus comment widget.
