Ian Berry est un artiste qui crée à partir d'un tissu spécial, le denim.
Ian Berry is an artist who creates from a special fabric, denim.

Ayrton Senna, by Ian Berry
Ceci n'est pas une peinture, mais bien une oeuvre textile ! Ian Berry utilise des couches de petits morceaux de jean pour créer ses magnifiques tableaux.

This is not a painting, but textile art! Ian Berry uses shades of layered denim to create these beautiful patchworks.

Very cool - my kind of style! For some reason it makes me think of James Dean.

My D today is about democracy in Switzerland. Not nearly as fancy as blue jeans ;-) You'll get, however, to vote on something:
Wow! That's incredible! I would have never noticed they are not paintings...

Good lord! Those are amazing. It never ceases to amaze me how artists can take the most every day thing and turn it into something stunning. Such talent is breathtaking.

Amazing! To think, one day my old Levi's could become a work of art!

My A-Z tale!
Anne M Bray a dit…
Every day, amazing quilts! You know denim is a special fabric for me -- even if my A-Z denim is digital. I DID have to scan all the denims that I could find and put them into repeat. My first quilt started with patched denim jeans that were banned from school.
Here's another way that I'm using denim, weaving (it's still not finished. ARGH):

Good grief! this is just unbelievable! Look at that perspective on that floor, insane! and the light coming in at the opposite end! Speechless, really.
NotesinaBook a dit…
These are stunning!
Yes, I know your relationship with denim ;) Your weaving is looking good!
Sonia Dogra a dit…
I am awed. There's so much talent in the world. So many beautiful things people are doing. Thanks!
Chantal a dit…
I am flabbergasted! Too stunning for words. Like doing celebrities is so hard to do so they look like the celebrity in question but to make them in denim!! Beyond cool! Wish I could afford one of his work because I'm in love with this guy now. Look at the "Behind closed doors" one. That floor is amazing in itself but look on the left, the glass of the first picture reflects the pattern of the floor. Now that is mind-blowing. Masterpiece! Merci de partager. C'est incroyable même si j'ai vu de mes yeux. ;^)
Shared the denim artist video with the fam. I hope he knows how talented he is!

Liz A. a dit…
Wow, that's amazing.
Hi Mary, I don't get it: why an English Button? The video is in English, and I try to translate my blog in English too. Well maybe it's a complete fail?
Janet a dit…
Wow what a talent! That's some recycling at its finest!

Wow, it's incredible to see all that done with denim! Especially the rippling water effect in that last image. I work in more traditional art media, and that's an effect I have a really tough time pulling off.
Jade Li a dit…
Fascinating. It's twice as fabulous because of the subjects he chooses to do.

This is amazing. Going through all those pairs of jeans to find just the right shade of blue for a piece of work. Awe-inspiring! :O
Kim a dit…
Oh wow, I cannot believe all these most amazing pictures are made from denim. Why, they look like photographs. Ian Berry is a most incredible textile artist. I loved viewing the video, thank you.
