As museums and galleries have closed due to the spread of coronavirus, people still need to find a way to get that artsy fix. And Spain, the second worst-hit country in the world, is no exception.

The land of Don Quixote is buzzing with quarantined people who are taking the arts and crafts game to the next level. The Facebook group “Quearteencasa” invites everyone to join the real-life painting recreation challenge. The group description says that all you need to do is to pick a favorite painting and recreate it with household items. And some of the entries look so real you'd better look twice at La Gioconda’s cheeky smile. Yep, it's a neighbor from the top floor, nailing the Renaissance look like she was born in Cinquecento. I'm adding this to my lockdown entertainment menu.

After you’re done, check out some more hilarious painting recreations by quarantined people here and here.

Quearteencasa group’s description assures would-be members that “you don’t have to be a great art expert to participate.” You can choose the format to recreate—a painting, a poster, or a stamp. The group encourages participants to “be creative, funny, ironic, humorous” and, most importantly, “surprise them.”

It’s not the first time that Spain, the second worst coronavirus-hit country, has demonstrated its taste for art during the lockdown. Three Barcelona-based creators, Emma Calvo, Irene Llorca, and José Guerrero, have launched the “Covid Art Museum” on Instagram, which commissions artists to reflect their lives in quarantine. The pandemic will end eventually, but art will remain forever.

Bored Panda contacted Elmira Kamalova, the administrator of the Quearteencasa Facebook group, to find out more about the community.

She said that similar groups exist all over the world and the idea itself isn’t original. But Quearteencasa is aimed at people from Spanish-speaking countries who could use the platform to engage in local art, things, and popular stuff. “Our members come from Spain, Mexico and Argentina. And some people, they come from Italy!”

“People can talk about things in their own language, support each other, and get united online,” Elmira explained. Her end goal is to turn this challenge into an international project and make it a legit artistic game for everyone to enjoy! “I would like it to become its own kind of Artistic Game, like the Olympic Games or Eurovision, where each country has its own group of people competing with each other,” said Elmira.
