I’ve seen some great toy photography used to recreate different kinds of scenes. I’ve also seen many awesome recreations of artwork. But Spanish photographer David Cubero combines toys and photography to recreate famous works of art. He uses Marvel toys to do it, and the results are not only well executed, but also very amusing. Let’s see if you can guess which photo represents which work of art.
David loves toys and photography, and has been shooting photos of his toys collection since 2009. He recently started this series about the history of art using Marvel Toys, mostly Iron Man. He shared with DIYP some details of one of his photos, and the inspiration for it:
He says he chose this approach because he uses references to create new pictures, and he thought it would be fun to recreate these well-known images with modern iconic heroes. As far as I’m concerned, he’s right. I find this project really interesting, and I definitely had fun looking at the photos. Check out more of the photos from the project:
So, how many did you guess? If you enjoyed this project, make sure to check out David’s Instagram. It’s not only about Marvel’s toys – Star Wars fans will enjoy, too!
