a cut above...
Sometimes on pinterest you come across an image that captivates you so completely, you spend the next few day thinking - why does my brain not work that way?
So it was when I came across this one above by Madrid based photographer and artist Pablo Thecuadro. He cuts apart fashion editorials and photographs to create abstract slightly surreal collages.
Using editorial images from other photographers as well as his own, Thecuadro puts them together by hand with a cutter. He mainly shares his latest works on his Tumblr and his artworks has been featured in publications such as ELLE Serbia and Cosas Couture.
In a statement about his work, Thecuadro says: “The collages I make express the duality in the human being, who we want to be versus who we really are and what part of us we show to others. ‘Collage Art’ is a never ending process, you can put as many images you want together over and over again.”
Taking a different approach but creating equally wonderful images is Marcelo Montreal, a Brazilian digital collage artist based in Santa Catarina, Brazil.
”Faces I always drew attention. And if i stressing? If the let loose from the rest of the body, which would be within? Well, to me, still I think that people have a little bit of beauty within them by more that this is saved and only revealed in rare moments. The result of this reflection gave rise to this series called: Faces [UN]bonded.”
Flowers and Christopher Walken are a match made in heaven...
Now pass the scissors please, it's about time I tried to get more creative...
