Covid Classics

Each of us around the world is looking for the best way to keep busy during this quarantine period. Of course, interests and culture are proving to be excellent allies to breed creativity and avoid being overwhelmed by the anguishing atmospheres of the news.

Sam Haller and his roommates from New Haven, Connecticut, spent the first week of isolation recreating some of the most famous masterpieces of painting, with a touch of irony that never hurts. From Marat to Magritte, from American Gothic to the Girl with a Pearl Earring, this is their nice tribute to art. More seems to be on the way, “until the quarantine lift or they run out of different color fabrics.”
