Famed Portraits and Paintings Recreated with Found Objects


UK-based artist Jane Perkins produces incredible pieces that recreate classic works of art and portraits of iconic figures using thousands of multicolored found objects. Each of the artist's creations is a compilation of numerous objects that range in color, size, and texture. She works with anything from buttons and beads to LEGO pieces, shells, plastic spoons, and clothespins.

The key behind Perkins' incredible work is her keen eye for color and the ability to arrange each tiny plastic elements in visually cohesive configurations, as she never manipulates the pigments in any of the small figures she uses. The hue of each component is its original color. The work simply relies on Perkins' skilled eye and hand to assemble it all together. In the end, each piece is a work of art that can be appreciated both from afar and up-close, much like an Impressionist painting.

Very well done. Did she take inspiration from Vik Muniz?
