No matter how much school or tutelage they receive, a true artist will always have a style and aesthetic that is 100% their own. Sure, they might be inspired or influenced by other great work that they admire, but real talent lies in being able to take that influence and craft it into something original, something that people see and automatically associate with you. That’s what makes this Instagram artist’s challenge so amazing: Each artist that participated showed their own work, then recreated other famous illustrations with their own individual flair. The result is an image that is all at once original and paying homage to the greats — and also highlighting the signature style of everyone involved. Using their own talent and their approach to others’ work, these artists have created something pretty epic. See how it got started, and check out the fruits of the Instagram artist’s #stylechallenge in the photo below.
