Watch These Artists Forge Famous Paintings by Photoshopping Stock Photos Together

Ankur Patar is an artist with a talent for recreating famous paintings. His forgeries wouldn’t fool a child, let alone an art expert, but they’re still absolutely remarkable pieces of art unto themselves because they’re painstakingly assembled in Photoshop using nothing but stock photos.

Here’s a timelapse video of Patar rebuilding Rembrandt’s The Storm on the Sea of Galilee, and even going so far as to replace the artist’s included self-portrait in the painting with a photo of himself.

Patar isn’t the only artist with a talent for digital forgeries, though. Continuing with the theme of using stock photography and Photoshop instead of a brush and paints, Karla Cordova recreated Frida Kahlo’s The Wounded Table.

Jean‐Charles Debroize recreated Caravaggio’s Saint Matthew and the Angel.

And Mike Campau brought Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s Cathedral Towering over a Town, which was destroyed by fire in 1931, back to life using nothing but pixels, time, and Photoshop’s handy magnetic lasso tool.
