Old Blue Jeans Transformed into Painterly Art – Ian Berry.

Ian Berry is a British artist. He creates monochromatic compositions that depict urban landscapes, the London Underground, diners, and even gets around to doing portraits — all out of varying shades of denim fabrics. His weeks of cutting, stitching, and gluing varying shades of denim fabric together create images that are uber rich in contrast and shadow. When you first look at his images, it’s hard not to be blown away by the detail and think his art must be a painting. Then, you find out they’re all created solely from denim, and your brain is thrown into a WTF tailspin; which makes the images so much more amazing.

His creations come to life by combing through thousands of pairs of discarded jeans. Utilizing the darkest of indigos to the lightest denim hues he’s able to find every shade necessary for creating dark shadows to bright highlights. You can see how he uses the unique fading tones and textures intrinsic in his medium to make the environments, hair, and clothes really come to life. The hyper-realness of his work is astounding.
