Korean artist Yeondoo Jung just might have the biggest childlike spirit not to mention a great way to display that refrigerator art!
Jung takes a child’s artwork and turns it into a new form replicating a LIFE SIZE installation. Jung then photographed each real life creation and Whaaa La . . .Here is Wonderland!
One of the galleries explains how Jung executes his vision:
[The series] presents costumed adolescents posing in sets based as closely as possible on children’s drawings. He collaborates with many people to bring to life the boundless imagination in the drawings. For four months, Jung oversaw art classes in four kindergartens in Seoul and collected 1,200 drawings by children between the ages of five and seven. After pouring through them, he carefully selected 17 drawings and interpreted their meanings. Then he recruited 60 high school students by passing out handbills at their schools in which he invited them to act out the scenarios in the children’s drawings. In order to recreate faithfully drawing details such as dresses with uneven sleeves or buttons of different sizes, he convinced five fashion designers to custom make the clothing for the photo shoot. He also made props unlike any scale found in reality but similar to those in the drawings.

I bet Jung’s mother proudly displays his work on her fridge.
