Russians Spend Coronavirus Quarantine Creatively: They Look Like Paintings

Members of Facebook group ART-ISOLATION (Изоизоляция), decided to get creative in the times of worldwide lockdown and reimagened famous paintings. The community rules insist on no Photoshop. Also, images must be an “original” creation, made during coronavirus quarantine.
