British denim artist Ian Berry (a.k.a. Denimu) conjures remarkably detailed portraits and urban landscapes using nothing more than old jeans. Over many weeks he cuts, stitches and glues using only the varying blue indigo shades of the denim fabric to provide contrast and shadow. The effect is amazingly detailed images, with a depth and texture that is hard to reproduce in print and online. He made portraits from Elvis Presley, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and recently he did racing driver Ayrton Senna da Silva. Ian used for this awesome portrait old jeans from the Senna family to create this masterpiece.
