It is hard to find an art lover in the world who doesnât know about the popular Mona Lisa painting. The enigmatic smile of the woman portrayed in that painting is really astonishing and is unquestionably a center of great attraction among the people across the globe. First of all, it was made by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci as an oil painting and was completed circa 1503-1519. This beautiful painting has gained a widespread popularity in the world, and has been recapitulated in every type of appearance that could be imagined by human brains. As a matter of the fact, this painting gets a new charm every time when it is made and edited. The artists who believe in making ‘best out of waste’ have also tried to do this painting from junk materials, and it will not be wrong to say that they have gained a huge success in this. These paintings have added some new dimensions to creativity while providing some new and original effects to the portrait of Mona Lisa.
1. Rubik’s cube:
Artist David Griebeling has arranged the Rubikâs Cubes in such a way that the painting of Mona Lisa has been re-born in a unique and powerful view. The Rubikâs Cubes boast of only six colors but this limited palette does not affect the creativity of David. Generally, the work through the cubes is considered as frustrating for several artists as it takes a lot of days, but Griebeling took only two days in preparing it. Around 800 cult 1980s cubes have been used to bring out this different look of Mona Lisa. There is no doubt in the fact that an entirely distinct style has been given to Mona Lisa, hats off to David Griebeling.
2. Food stuff:
It is really fascinating that now it is also possible to recreate one of the worldâs popular masterpieces with the help of food stuff. This miracle-type work has been accomplished by the artists of Russia. The portrait is made with the use of sliced sausages, and this artwork is displayed in a way that the viewers can not only praise it, but can also eat it. The idea of using the artwork as eatable can be a subject to debate, but still it is getting a lot of attention among art lovers. But the fact cannot be denied that it is a great work of creativity which is incomparable.
3. Train tickets:
It is a matter of delight that the use of train tickets is not limited to travel alone, but some employees of a departmental store in Osaka, Japan, have made a new version of Mona Lisa with their help. This 2.5- by 1.5-meter Mona Lisa, is constructed from carefully overlapped recycled train tickets which were gathered from Japanese rail system. This portrait was made in three months by 300 workers using 320000 train tickets. The black and white shades of tickets did not prove to be a hurdle for the workers who have made it, and they completed their task efficiently which added a new creativity to this worldâs most popular painting.
4. From waste:
In our households, we often find a lot of material which is just garbage. Generally, we have no other option than throwing it, but Jane Perkins has changed this trend. She made a beautiful portrait of Mona Lisa, using everything such as old toys, buttons, plastic cutlery, spools etc which she collected from the garbage bags of her neighborhood. This portrait of Mona Lisa has retained the originality of expression and colors of the painting. This portrait undoubtedly gives an idea to the creative people to make the best use of household waste.
5. Tech waste:
This is the age of technology, but the same does not affect the significance of art. Main office of Asus in Taiwan decided to convert the technology waste into artwork, and converted the reprocessing abandoned circuitry assembled from the innards of dead computers, into a picture of Mona Lisa. The team of Asus employees thought the work to be âsome crazy ideaâ which really has become a unique masterpiece now. This great blend of technology and art is unquestionably going to be an inspiration for future technology geeks with creative temperaments.
Besides the above five, a lot of other successful experiments through waste products have been made on the painting of Mona Lisa. Portraits made up of coffee cups, thread, tofu, sticky notes, logos etc. can be taken as examples in this respect. So, if you are a creative person, then try to use your skills for giving a new look to the masterpiece of Leonardo da Vinci. Probably, you can also get your name added to the list.
