These fantastic portraits by artist Hendrik Kerstens take classic pictures and infuses them with strange items found around the house. In the paintings, the model wears these items around her neck and on her head, but remains completely somber the entire time.

The items used to mix up these classic style portraits include plastic bags, tea towels, doilies, toilet paper and lamp shades. The background, and the depicted women's clothes are black, so these items easily become the focus of these artworks.

Hendrik Kerstens is a creative artist who tries to blend elements of painting and photography in her works. These portraits injected with random items are definitely fun to look at. It's always interesting to see someone wearing a hat made entirely from bubble wrap.
