D.I.Y. Artist Creates Lady Gaga Barbies That’ll Leave You Speechless

Posted in Art Star, Found, inspiration, Obsession du Jour by Ciara on January 4, 2010

Beijing “doll player” and strong advocate of D.I.Y., Veik, has the most amazing Flickr stream with images of his Lady Gaga Barbie Dolls!  He says he doesn’t intend to sell the dolls; he just really wants to encourage others to get crafty.  “Crafty” isn’t even an appropriate word for what he is doing — this is fine art (I hate these labels, BTW and dislike that D.I.Y. is often dismissed as kitsch, etc. but that is a discussion for another day…).  He has the evolution of the Gaga-coif down to a science and the Alexander McQueen re-creations’ details are insane, especially considering working on such a tiny scale.  I, for one, feel very inspired – I’ve recently added some new dolls to my collection, maybe they need a few Gaga-esque accessories! 😉

    Whoa! Velk really got all of these looks right on the money. To say that these Gaga Barbies are insanely cool would be a gross understatement. Thanks for sharing these, Ciara!

    I’m sorry…I meant Veik. (I should probably put on my glasses. 😉

    GaGaGaGaGreat!!! This is so very cool. As a Barbie couture artist myself-I do appreciate the small scale and the patience it takes to create this. May it inspire all of us to push the limits and just dance…….(I mean just CREATE!)
