Most of us take flowers, fruit, and other natural objects at face value, but imaginative Spanish artist Jesuso Ortiz uses them to create art. He combines various found objects with his drawings to create playful, three-dimensional illustrations that give everyday items new meaning.
Ortiz has been creating his illustration mashups for years, but there’s no sign of him running out of ideas. His latest work sees flowers as elaborate headdresses, fruit slices as bicycle wheels, and, in once piece, he’s cleverly reimagined an egg yolk as a big yellow balloon. Each object is perfectly paired with his minimalist drawings, creating striking, colorful images that will make you look twice.
