Many artists are rising to the crenel today to denounce the plastic pollution and some also know how to take advantage of it to give life to their creations. This is particularly the case Suzanne Jongmans, a multidisciplinary artist fromNetherlands who's having fun to recycle the packing materials to create elaborate costumes inspired by the Renaissance.
So, Suzanne Jongmans makes caps with leaves of polystyrene and of plastic, passes in bubble film or dresses decorated with polystyrene beads. But the work of Suzanne Jongmans do not stop at making these clothes surreal.
Plastic clothes that literally plunge us into the Renaissance era 👗
She then stages her different plastic suits in photos with models whose poses are reminiscent of those ofportraits from the 15th to the 17th centuries. And it's so successful that we almost think we're dealing with paintings straight out of the Renaissance. But beyond the beauty of his works, the artist wants above all to raise awareness of our consumption patterns:
The use of residual materials is a nod to our daily lives and the mass consumption that surrounds us. Most people throw bubble wrap, but like a child, I see it as rough diamond.
In short, the work of Suzanne Jongmans uses her different talents: seamstress, costume designer and photographer. Works that also remind us of the recent collection of Moncler, who imagined comforters inspired by the paintings of the Renaissance in collaboration with the artistic director Pierpaolo Piccioli.
We let you discover below the most beautiful creations Suzanne Jongmans which reconciles, through this recycling of plastic in costume, tradition and modernity. You will also find more information on his portfolio.
