Incredible Portraits Recreated with Recycled Objects (8 pics)

Incredible Portraits Recreated with Recycled Objects — British artist Jane Perkins obtains her inspiration in found objects. This set of artworks is composed by some impressive recreations of famous paintings and photographs. She uses anything from toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewelry etc. as material for her re-interpreted contemporary art. She never changes the original color of the objects she uses, so the result is all about her talent and her impressive attention for the detail, that is what really make her artworks so recognizable.

Jane Perkins worked as a nurse for 17 years, in a London hospital, before she decided to explore her artistic talents and got a degree in textiles in 2006. For her graduation thesis the artist chose a topic that would later be associated with her name  - “Recycled Materials in Art and Design”. She began her successful career by creating stylish brooches mad with discarded jewelry, coins, sea shells and other found junk, but soon moved on to other more complex and impressive works.
