Denim, son! Look at these amazing collages made entirely out of denim! British-born, Sweden-based artist Denimu incorporates cut up jeans to create his unique artworks. Check out the photos after the jump.
Denimu got his name from the Japanese pronunciation of the word “denim”. His love for the fabric gave him the inspiration for his work. He re-uses used pants, jackets, and other denim clothing of different shades and colors by cutting them into specific shapes to make his art pieces. He has done a variety of work from portraits to urbanscapes.
Denimu’s creations never fail to impress us. I personally have a knack for artists who utilize unusual, regular objects into their art, and Denimu’s concept is one of those well-executed ideas out there. His work has been featured in several galleries in Sweden and in US. He also got featured in numerous online and print publications which can also be seen on his website.
We had an epic Film Photography Day celebration this year at the Lomography Gallery Store NYC. Our friends at Sacred Tattoo NYC were kind enough to transform the gallery into a tattoo shop so Lomographers could show their analog pride forever and ever with a free camera tattoo!
