Let this be a life tip to anyone that finds themselves bored at work, which i'm sure will be a lot of you, that when you are feeling bored don't just try and ride it out - do something about it! just like Chris Limbrick and Francesco Fragomeni did.

The coworkers at Squarespace in New York decided that they would spend their free time wisely by recreating famous paintings rather than sitting around the office and the results are pretty hilarious. Using just office supplies they have created an entire series that they have named “Fools Do Art.”

They clearly have A LOT of office supplies.
