Flea Market Art Turned into Video Game Tapestry: Remastered Edition

by Lambert Varias

French artist Gauvain Manhattan bought six old paintings from flea markets and then painstakingly wove replicas of each painting. He didn’t replicate them perfectly though. Instead he turned the real world subjects into virtual ones by adding characters and other elements from video games.

That piece with a large explosion becomes a lot funnier when you see what the painting originally looked like. Gauvain said he plans to do more of these if he finds more paintings. Check out his website for high resolution shots of the tapestries. While you’re there you might as well gawk at his irreverent Assassin’s Creed figurine.
