Taking children’s art and turning it into current art? Love the idea and it just goes to show how sophisticated artists kids really are. Here are two artists that are taking a slightly different angle on this idea.
Dave DeVries, working out of New Jersey, uses kids doodles and drawings, and recreates them with a grown up flavor. His site The Monster Engine has been around for quite some time and has become quite a hit since is was first created in 2005. I love that he truly retains the essence and feel of the original doodles.
Yeondoo Jung, from Korea, takes the same idea but executes it in a completely different way. His “Wonderland” series explores simplistic shape focused children’s sketches which he interprets into striking photography.
Happy drawing to all.
