Renaissance Art paintings recreated through photos... in a garage!

Call it a cliche but a garage is where you store - and repair - automotive art, like a Shelby Cobra (there's a reason why it's arguably the most replicated kit car for years), an Aston Martin DB5, and a Ferrari 25 GTO. A garage is not something you'd usually associate with highbrow art like Renaissance era paintings.

Not for photographer Freddy Fabris though. Using a garage as his background and what are supposedly mechanics for his subjects, Fabris recreated  famous Renaissance Art paintings like Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper and Michaelangelo's The Creation of Adam. For good measure, the New York-born and Buenos Aires-raised Fabris even did some portraits in the style of Rembrandt.

"I wanted to respect the look and feel of the originals, but needed to come up with a conceptual twist that would create a new layer to the original. To take them out of their original context, yet maintain their essence," Fabris told Huffington Post in an interview.

Check out the rest of the photos below. Who knew holding a drum funnel can be done with such artistic poise!
