You are presumably aware of the recent DIY art movement that began during the first quarantine. It quickly became popular for people to duplicate some of the most well-known artworks at home using anything they could find.
Everyone seems to have their take on it thanks to the Getty Museum Challenge, with the Kyiv Art Museum joining in, the Amsterdam-based group “Between Art and Quarantine” uploading some of the best recreations, and the Spanish group “Quearteencasa” joining the crowd.
However, now that the pandemic is well underway and we have been confined, released, and then quarantined once more, the difficulty is seeing a comeback. It turns out that Eliza Reinhardt, an artist from Lantana, Texas, has been producing the daily recreations as a creative homage to whatever she chooses for almost a year.
However, she is not the only one who creates detailed and authentic DIY collages. The artist has paired up with her adorable Australian shepherd, Finn. Don’t forget to vote on the parts you liked best as you scroll down to see the pawsome duo’s beautiful recreations!
Eliza Reinhardt, the creator of the elaborate recreations that include her Australian shepherd dog named Finn, was interviewed by Bored Panda. Eliza informed us that she lost her job in March 2020, which caused her to spend all of her time with Finn at home.
“Since I paint, I would want to work in my studio, but Finn would be very furious if I did. I, therefore, wanted to think of a project that we could work on together. Eliza’s mother explained that she had seen a challenge online and had thought it would be enjoyable to complete with Finn at that time.
I anticipated that after a short while of taking pictures, he would get bored, but because he is an Australian shepherd, a working breed, he thrives when given a task. It turns out that the adorable canine friend “has 110 percent taken up as his daily responsibility,” stated Eliza.
When questioned how her dog is so adept with the camera, Eliza responded that he is aware of her requests because “he feels he is ‘working,'” He’ll comply with practically whatever I ask of him since he’s just trying so hard to please and get it perfect.
The current uptick in homemade recreations of original works of art was motivated by the quarantine. People’s lives are currently undergoing significant changes, and, likely, the pre-pandemic way of life won’t return. Eliza now appreciates the little things, just like so many of us did throughout the confinement.
I prefer going for long walks with Finn throughout the daytime just to enjoy the fresh air. I’ve had to slow down and give myself space to just “be.”
According to the artist, this time in our lives is a breath of fresh air because everyone is used to “being rushed and constantly bombarded with activities—go go go” lifestyle.” Being forced to settle down and take things a little more slowly, Eliza told us, “honestly feels like a blessing in disguise.”
Eliza added that over the past year, her pawsome recreations have helped her attract a sizable fanbase. It’s just so sweet to get emails and notes from individuals thanking us for making them smile or laugh when they truly needed it.
“Aside from making people laugh, I am overjoyed that I get to discover these works and share art with everyone,” the author said. Eliza stated that her main objective at this time is to make art more available to the general audience.
“I have a foundation in the arts because I attended an art school and studied painting. The feedback from people who claim to be seeing details in the original image as a result of our replication or who have picked up on details in a piece of work that they hadn’t before really astounded me.
