Call herself “re-maker”, UK-based artist Jane Perkins takes inspiration from found objects and working them into something new. In her “Plastic Classics”, she successfully re-create recognizable iconic paintings like DaVinci’s Mona Lisa and portraits of stars like Albert Einstein and Nelson Mandela with those neglected itmes such as buttons, toys, shells, beads, jewelry, LEGO pieces, etc. As Jane mentioned, she use anything of the right size, shape or colour to create those portraits – no colour is added, everything is used exactly ‘as found’! Her work keeps your eyes attached from a distance view and when you go closer, a miniature textured world of forgotten knick-knacks is waiting for you to explore.
I was asked to do a collage image today, and came across these brilliant works done by Tsevis Visual Design. The studio is located in the capital of Greece and specializing in high quality digital imaging and illustration for both editorial and advertising needs.
From Tsevis: MOSAICS, Making mosaics is a true passion for me. I have been developing mosaic techniques since 1997. I am using my own developed scripts and macros as well as semi-automatic and even analog techniques.
