At first glance, these look like photographs of some of the world's most recognizable paintings: Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'. 'A Bar at the Folies Bergère' by Édouard Manet. 'Sick Bacchus' by Caravaggio.
But look a little closer. These works weren't made with paint.
Instead, Brooklyn-based artist Vik Muniz uses pages from magazines to recreate classic works of art. If you look closely, you can see faces and other images from the magazines that Muniz used to create the works.
Muniz, who was born in Sao Paulo, often uses unexpected materials in his work. For instance, his 'Pictures of Garbage' series features large images made out of pieces of trash. Check out one of those right here.
He's also used puzzle pieces, thread, jam, dust, ketchup, and sugar to create pieces. He's exhibited his work all over the world - you can check out his (very long) bio here.
