British Artist Makes Portraits from Junk

Share

A talented British artist, Jane Perkins, decided to recycle and reuse different objects, which most people would throw away, to create beautiful masterpieces. Her works include the portraits of politicians made from buttons, toys, plastic forks etc.

It would be interesting to note that the artist was inspired by hairstylists from Ecuador, who are famous for creating designs using broken jewelry, informs BBC.

Perkins has been making portraits from trash since 2008 and now she can make a work of art from virtually anything she can get her hands on. Perkin's works are anything but traditional, with the objects she uses getting a much greater value compared to when they are left unused.
