Imaginative artist Aaron Johnson creates these wildly colorful monster paintings using socks. Though Johnson's previous works are extremely vibrant as well, these striking masterpieces are made more interesting by the materials used to create them. Each of these peculiar paintings contains more than ten socks, which add an interesting look and texture to these pieces.

Johnson has said that he believes that the socks used in his paintings retain the spirit or energy of their original owners. In his eyes, this helps bring a certain liveliness to these artworks.

These sock creatures have a kind of child-like innocence to them. They look almost cartoonish. The bright colors and cotton socks used by Johnson give these paintings an air of fun, and contribute to the eye-catching nature of these clever creations.
