Museums have been asking the socially-distant public to recreate works of art at home using household items — here are 25 of the most inventive, creative and humorous.

At the outbreak of the lockdowns six months ago, we published an article “When Life Imitates Art” in which museums asked their patrons, who were unable to visit in person, to recreate their favourite works of art from household items.

See how many artworks and artists you can name, and also see if you can spot the lockdown theme in some of them.

Before you give up on your artistic pursuits, try a new approach and tap into your creative mind.
