Stock imagery is rarely talked about in a positive light. Adobe is setting out to change that. Introducing “Make a Masterpiece.” Adobe challenged four digital artists from its Behance artist community to faithfully and intricately re-create lost, stolen or destroyed art using just Adobe Stock photography inside the Creative Cloud.
The artists and their assigned pieces of art included Karla Cordova (Ecuador) and Frida Kahlo’s The Wounded Table; Jean-Charles Debroize (France) and Caravaggio’s Saint Matthew and the Angel; Mike Campau (US) and Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s Cathedral Towering Over a Town; and Ankur Patar (India) and Rembrandt van Rijn’s The Storm on the Sea of Galilee.
The result is four re-creations of lost masterpieces created from thousands of Adobe Stock photographs that, without a second glance, could pass for the originals.
The “Make a Masterpiece” experience is housed at http://www.adobestockmasterpiece.com/ and features the finished masterpieces as well as behind-the-scenes footage. Clicking on each masterpiece reveals the individual stock photos used in their creation.
