Artist Transforms Ordinary Objects with Bright Colored Beads

New York artist Jan Huling takes common objects, such as dolls, toys or statues, and meticulously transforms them with vibrant patterns of beads. This process completely alters the original object, making even highly recognizable figures seem unfamiliar when stripped down to their most basic structure.

Huling explains, “In each of my constructions, surface design is the key component. Czech seed beads adorn objects in colorful patterns, camouflaging their original circumstance, allowing us to see them as pure form without their usual connotations. The process is slow and meticulous, zen-like, with the choice of forms motivating color schemes and iconography."
