9 Great Classics Recreated With Ripped Paper

Vik Muniz has the unique talent of ripping up printed matter (i.e. magazines, comic books, print ads, etc.). He also likes to recompose the paper into collages. Those collages just happen to be classic masterpieces that are perfectly re-created.

The Brazilian artist uses thousands of torn pieces of paper for his work, but it’s their rough, jagged quality that brings Muniz’ pieces to life. From afar, the original classics and Muniz’ versions are impressively similar. Upon closer inspection, the thousands of pieces that compose the copied art is what allows Muniz to differentiate himself from past artists and shine as an artist of this generation.
