DIY Art Inspired By Famous Paintings

On a whim last night, we decided to put some of the blank canvases laying around the apartment to use. With limited resources (aka "no paint"), we cobbled together a copy of this Christopher Wool piece using some black painter's tape and an exacto knife...

We found some inspiration online, via Nick Olsen's faux Franz Kline (above) and decorator Michael Bargo's storage-masking homemade abstracts (below). According to Nick, "If I can't get the real thing, I fake it." We couldn't agree more.

What about you? Do you have any art in your home that you've made yourself? What artists do you feel you could successfully plagiarize? Post links to photos in the comments!
