Australian artist Freya Jobbins makes amazing art with old toys. Giuseppe Arcimboldo reincarnated in the NSW bush.
This is Freya Jobbins.
The Australian artist makes portraits assembled from discarded toys and plastic parts.
Her work is inspired by Renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
"I love Giuseppe’s artworks", Jobbins told BuzzFeed. "They were my inspiration. When I saw his paintings many years ago I became fascinated by him."
"I love Arcimboldo's way of using objects totally out of context to create a ‘portrait’. I love generating a range of responses to existing cultural objects (the toys) and placing them totally out of context like Giuseppe."
They're very weird. And VERY wonderful.
"People usually adore my art or are rather disturbed," said Jobbins. "I love that, the response is so important as getting a response is what artists always search for!"
