Items like paper clips usually cause clutter in unwanted drawers, but for artist Adam Hellman, these everyday items make perfect materials for creating visually soothing colorful arrangements. Hellmann calls himself an “object organiser,” but his work goes beyond mere placement of items. It uses paperclips, coins, toothpicks, edible ingredients, and more to create visually striking flat art. And although many of his works are non-representational styles, Hellmann has recently been creating compositions inspired by famous paintings from art history.

from Van Gogh starry night for Picasso GuernicaEach iconic artwork is reimagined in fun Hellmann style. In one work, the innovative artist used broken bits of grain to recreate one of Van Gogh’s self-portraits. In another, colored paper clips are arranged to look like Edvard Munch’s paint strokes yelp. Although each colorful composition is made using existing objects, it still celebrates the expressive quality of the original artwork. Each manually placed object acts as an expressive brush stroke or raster point in a raster palette.
