This Artist Uses Keyboards to Make Art

Erik Jensen, an award-winning deaf artist, removes the individual keys from computer keyboards and uses them to recreate famous works of art as keyboard mosaics. Each piece consists of thousands of keys that he dyes for the purpose of recreating artworks like Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, and Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.

“He enjoys bringing all old computer keyboards back to life by creating a stunning art-murals out of those keyboard keys,” we read on his website. “It was an amazing experience to see him making beautiful art out of all good old keys.”

Jensen started doing art when he was a kid and never stopped. You can see his art below.
