Famous portraits and paintings made from found objects

British artist Jane Perkins calls herself a re-maker, as she uses found objects of various shapes, sizes and hues to replicate the most famous paintings and portraits of our times. In her gorgeous mosaic series “Plastic Classics”, Perkins combines all sorts of plastic objects – buttons, LEGO pieces, beads, figurines – and matches their shapes and authentic hues so well that the works look strikingly similar to the originals. These artworks resemble the impressionistic tradition, as they can be appreciated both from a distance as well as up close.
