Teenage Artist Playfully Adds Everyday Objects to Complete Clever Illustrations
Artist Kristián Mensa sees the incredible potential in everyday objects. To him, a pear is not just a piece of fruit, but the body of a small bird. Likewise, a toilet paper roll doubles as a miniaturized red carpet for tiny celebrities. To create these whimsical compositions, Mensa pairs these items with minimalist drawings that incorporate the 3D elements among bold lines. The results are amusing, reflecting Mensa’s uplifting way of looking at the world.
“Since I was a little kid,” Mensa explained on Bored Panda, “I’ve been always trying to look at things from a different perspective.” Still a teenager, the perceptive young artist has realized that even the most ordinary of objects can be transformed into something unique. “Try to look around when on your way to school or work and you’ll be surprised how many things around us can represent something completely different!”
