These unique, nicely fitted, and eye-catching installations are the work of artist Michael Johansson. His designs bear a close resemblance to an old tile matching video game named “Tetris”â€”but instead of blocks, he stacks up various discarded household materials to give them an entirely new appearance.
In every location Thomas Barbey has traveled to, he has taken photographs and used them to create artistic montages of his envisioned fictional worlds. Working with negatives and double exposures, each scene is displayed in black and white or sepia; inspired by his travels, everyday life, and art by Magritte, Escher and Roger Dean.
This is the brilliant, hand-made collage art of Virginia Echeverria Whipple. Her work is a combination of classic and contemporary, and it is like she gets Picasso-crazy coloring over the photos.
The freaky photomontages of Kieron Cropper.
The mixed-media cutout illustrations of Sara E. Barnes. It is interesting to see the complex level of color, texture and layering in Barnesâ€™ artwork.
The collage art of Ben Giles. View more at Flickr.
The collage art of Office Supplies Incorporated.
This is the layered collage art of Abigail McGuane. Some of her cutout shapes remind me of Roy Lichtensteinâ€™s pop art explosions (e.g. “Whaam!,” 1963).
The collage art of Jordan Clark.
Artist Patrick Bremer has created works of art using cutouts of magazines and books.
