Artist completes his drawings by adding in everyday objects

17-year-old artist Kristian Mensa sees everyday objects not just as everyday objects, but as elements in art.

The Czech Republic-based illustrator incorporates seemingly ordinary items such as fruits, flowers, and even office supplies into his drawings. One piece depicts Edvard Munch’s Scream made from toilet paper, while another shows a night sky formed out of dominoes.

The concept is simple but takes a great deal of imagination and creativity to pull off.

“Throughout the years, I’ve realized that even the most ordinary things we use daily in our lives can be somehow unique,” he told Bored Panda. “Using my drawing and illustration skills, I’m always trying to make something new with those mundane things.”
