Artwork Made Out of Blue Jeans by Ian Berry Aka Denimu

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

Artist Ian Berry creates monochromatic compositions depicting urban scenes that are carefully constructed out of varying shades of denim fabrics. Ian Berry changed his name to Denimu to further emphasize his obsession with blue jeans. On closer inspection the characteristics of the denim material slowly emerge and the hours of labor are revealed. These surprisingly detailed works are cut, stitched, and glued together creating large scale urbanscapes that represent society and popular culture in a democratic way. His work is currently on display at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco, California. The group show is entitled Hard Time Mini Mall and was curated by Noah Antieau of Red Truck Gallery. The exhibit will be open to the public for viewing through May 4, 2013.
