Denimu is the working name for British artist Ian Berry. I have a few examples to show you today - just be sure to take a look at the rest of his work on his website. It's stunning!

Ian began working with denim after finding himself with a large stack of jeans that no longer fit. And yes - his work is entirely from different shades of denim. His artist's statement tells about his lifelong love of denim and how he began with the collages.

And this is an interesting interview with him - I always love hearing artists talk about their work.
So now I'm inspired to tackle my own stack of denim! They won't be lucky enough to become Denimu collages, but I am looking at the possibilities with new insight, now.
Happy Creating! Deborah
