Denimu (Ian Berry) is an artist hailing from Huddersfield, UK who has a kind of obsession with denim…especially since he changed his artist name to Denimu! Having developed a tactile enthusiasm for the fabric after finding a pile of unwanted jeans about to be donated, Denimu creates collage pieces using multiple strips of denim jeans.
“I found myself staring at them, mourning the old pants from my youth. I was transfixed by the ripped, faded beauty of the fabric. How the different blues contrasted against each other in a sea of shades. I couldn’t part with them; they were part of who I was then. And who I am now. I remember it was a time in my life when I was looking for a voice when I suddenly realized that what I had been looking for had been there all along.”
