Ian Berry Makes Art Out Of Denim
An artist who uses old denim jeans to create pictures of London street scenes is taking the art world by storm. Ian Berry started making the denim pieces of art full- time after he was made redundant from his job as an art director.
The 28- year- old hasn’t looked back since and recently returned from an art exhibition in Miami, Florida where his work fetched £4,500 a piece. Among his collection are pictures of the London Underground, Piccadilly Circus, Hampstead Heath and Camden Town.
Berry was first inspired to take up his denim art when he found some old jeans while clearing his old room after returning home from university in 2006.
To produce the works of art Berry cuts pieces of denim into precise shapes before painstakingly gluing them all together. Although he mainly uses old jeans he also likes to dabble with old denim jackets and dresses.
