Oct 21st, 2017: Be Art

If you like it, why not wear it?

Quote:
France-based photographer Stefan Draschan always keeps himself entertained at art galleries by creating his own art projects. One of those projects is “People matching artworks”. Although at first Draschan’s images seem perfectly staged, the secret behind them is actually patience.


Quote:
The photographer enjoys visiting different museums mostly in Paris, Vienna and Berlin where he waits for visitors to suddenly match with a piece of art in a funny way. The result is these humorous and unique pictures of unexpected harmony between people and the artworks they’re facing. It’s usually the outfits that match the art, but there are also people who match with the paintings because of their hair styles and colors, or even beards.
It may be true he stalks museums looking for matches, but it's hard to believe he doesn't ask these people to pose in front of the
matching art work. It certainly is possible and I suppose most museum goers hit most of the art sometime during their visit, plus
if their clothes match they obviously like the colors/patterns so would stop and look, but patience is the understatement of the year.

I bet he knows the pieces themselves by heart, and picks a few to aim for that day. Then he stalks the door and waits for someone in, say, a flowery dress to come in, then follows that person until they get to the painting in question.
