I discovered British modern artist Denimu aka Ian Berry last week while visiting a gallery in Hampstead, London. I immediately fell in love with his art and was so impressed when I realized that they were all made out of denim. The guy is obsessed with denim, obsessed to the point where he even changed his name to Denimu and made a career out of turning jeans into works of art. Ian conjures remarkably detailed portraits and urban landscapes using nothing more than discarded jeans. Over many weeks he cuts, stitches and glues using only the varying shades of the fabric to provide contrast and shadow. The effect is extraordinary.
