A New York-based artist and photographer named Zeren Badar has recreated a famous classic painting series using food and objects. His series titled ‘Accident Series’ consists of photography, painting and a collage to form a humorous and bizarre combination. The old paintings have food and other objects arranged to create an intriguing effect that redefines the classic image.

Each painting displays either a fried egg, rubber bands, shoes or other random objects placed on self-portraits of famous people. The humorous effect makes the photograph less serious and changes its meaning. The overall design focuses on how artists can simply change classic paintings with an interesting addition and personal touch. These effects give vintage photos a whole new meaning and purpose.
