about this item

Upcycling meets fine art in the work of British artist Jane Perkins, who re-creates iconic paintings using found objects.Jane Perkins uses almost anything she can find--buttons, plastic toys, LEGO pieces, beads, and more, to "re-make" iconic paintings such as Da Vinci'sMona Lisa, Van Gogh's Sunflowers, and Monet's Waterlilies. Perkins says, "I enjoy using materials which have a history, and love art with an element of fun and the unexpected." Each month of thePlastic Classics 2017 Wall Calendar features one of her colourful creations. Like in Impressionism, each image can be viewed as a whole, as well as in detail to identify some of the materials used.
