The Elaborate Denim Art of Ian Berry (aka Denimu)

Denimu captures urban landscapes, portraits and re-creations of iconic rock and roll albums with tremendous detail and depth.  The work is inspired, and in any medium it would be celebrated but as it happens these are created out of old blue jeans.  Denimu is much more than a gimmick artist and he has amassed a worldwide following because his work is fascinating and is masterfully executed.  That being said, a part of what makes the art so remarkable is the depth that he is able to achieve from the material, and the shock value to the viewer that such ornate art can come from such a common material.

Based in Sweden, but raised in the UK as Ian Berry (before adopting the handle Denimu) his work often harkens to London and its gritty landscapes.  Denimu is coming off of a recent show at the Catto gallery and will be part of the Small Indignities group show opening September 14th at the Red Truck Gallery in New Orleans.  More information is available at
