The Creation of Adam is based on a fresco painting by Michelangelo, which forms part of the Sistine Chapel's ceiling, painted c. 1508–1512. It illustrates the Biblical creation narrative from the Book of Genesis in which God breathes life into Adam, the first man. The fresco is part of a complex iconographic scheme and is chronologically the fourth in the series of panels depicting episodes from Genesis.

The image of the near-touching hands of God and Adam has become iconic of humanity. The painting has been reproduced in countless imitations and parodies.[3][3][4] Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper and Michelangelo's Creation of Adam are the most replicated religious paintings of all time. More on The Creation of Adam

Freddy Fabris, New York, 1970,  was born into an artistic aristocracy as the progeny of two dancers and choreographers at the American Ballet Theater at Lincoln Center, his father from Argentina and his mother from France. From an early age he was exposed to the most dynamic period of post modern artistic development in modern history to include de Kooning, Warhol, and Rothko. Fabris later moved to Buenos Aires, where he developed his voice as a visual artist. 

His latest conceptual work , The Renaissance series, incorporates the fusing together of the contemporary everyman with some of the greatest works of art history has ever seen, dating back to the 1400s. Bringing a wonderfully unique perspective to his craft and composition, Fabris breathes life into every one of his photographs, creating modern day masterpieces. There is a polished elegance and nobility present among so many of his subjects, bringing about the virtue in each individual captured. The Renaissance series has been awarded the APA Conceptual photography award, 1st Place International Color awards & the One Eyeland Silver award. In the last quarter of 2015, The Renaissance series went viral over the internet, after being featured in the Art section of the Huffington post. More on Freddy Fabris
