Tom Deininger is an assemblage artist who arranges bewilderingly large collections of odd plastic tchotchkes into gorgeous pieces, including this Monet-like masterpiece.

I’ve often wondered where all that crap from Wal-Mart ends up. Mystery solved!

Ahh… I see what you did there, Tom.
Aw, man. I hadn’t noticed that. Why’d he have to go and do that? I’m no prude, but it was such a cool idea on its own to make the art out of toys. This just sorta spoils it for me.
why did he have to do any of it? Not for you, sir. Not for you. Not for me neither.
I would pay a lot of money to have this as a jigsaw puzzle.

Man, I was into that way back in like 2005!
Should I be impressed with the artistry or galled by the showcase of bright and colorful garbage?
