Look! Wonderland

"I am coloring, my mom and sister are taking a picture"

Okay, this might be more "new to us" than "new" but when we saw these amazing photos, we knew we had to share them with you. In the past, we've discovered some creative ways to render children's artwork in new forms, but how about replicating a painting in a life-size piece of installation art? That's what Korean artist Yeondoo Jung did in his Wonderland series of photographs, with fantastic (in the fullest sense of the word) results.

Check out more amazing photos below the jump.

Jung gathered more than a thousand pieces of art from children between the ages of 5 and 7, and then recreated his favorites in full scale. What we like about these images is that, while they have an inevitable sense of whimsy, there's a slightly dark edge that respects the fact that children's artwork can be about more than just bunnies and happy faces.
