Children’s Art Recreated


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.

    Thanks so much for sharing this. I am an art liaison for my daughter’s elementary school and I’m always looking for ideas to bring more art to our kids. I’m starting an ARTist Journal book with artwork from as many artists as I can collect along with their bio and artist statement. I’d love to have something from you to add to my book! If you are interested in helping with my project, please contact me. 🙂 thanks!

    I’ve seen Dave DeVries work before, but hadn’t seen Yeondoo Jung’s. Both so clever and breathtakingly wonderful! Also, artist Aaron Zenz who’s four children have an art blog, which is wonderful in and of itself, but on their 3 year anniversary they posted many artist’s interpretations of the children’s drawings. Delightful! Check it!

    I love it. What is more pure than the art (or anything) straight from a child!
