Fools Do Art: Shenanigans at Squarespace
Two guys who work at Squarespace have caused a stir by their impromptu reenactments of famous works of art using just the materials they find around their New York office. I have a particular interest since Macfilos is powered by Squarespace and the system is tremendous. For those of us who don't like to get our fingers dirty, Squarespace offers a secure and carefully curated home for our little works of art.
I confess to occasionally bombarding the guys at Squarespace with some fatuous queries. They are so obliging and get back to me seemingly within minutes, night and day. But now I know what some of them get up to when they're not dealing with Macfilos muddles: They are dressing up and copying some of the world's greatest works of art. The two guys in question are Chis and Francesco. Their project is Fools Do Art:
His name is Chris. His name is Francesco. They love recreating famous paintings. All of the painting remixes are done at our office in NYC. The only rules are that all props must be things found in the office and all editing must be done on a phone (Android or iPhone).
Here are more of their mad antics to feast your eyes on:
