Each piece uses thousands of keys that are specifically dyed for recreations such as “The Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh, “Mona Lisa” by Leonard da Vinci, and “Girl with a Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer.
Jensen, who become an artist at a very young age, started working with keyboards for a college art project.
Erik started doing art when he was first able to pick up things. His mother was (and still is!) awesome and allowed him to be free in his creativity, even it if meant big messes.. …He started doing art with computer keyboard keys in 2013, started doing it as a business in 2017, and went to being a full-time artist in 2018.
Art Insider met with Jensen in his Utah workshop.

NEVER give up on your dreams. I’ve dreamed of making art that inspires people. Just to make a small difference with my reusing “trashed computer keyboards” AKA my treasures! It’s come true, little by little. I’m so excited that I had the opportunity to sell my Starry Night artwork made from 58 keyboard to FACEBOOK in Washington USA! I know right!? I hope all the awesome employees enjoy it as much as I have!
