Surreal Collages by Philipp Igumnov

October 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Just discovered these fun collages and illustrations by Moscow-based artist Philipp Igumnov. He strikes an intriguing balance in his work with many pieces being laugh-out-loud ridiculous while others are filled with a sort of sad, dreamlike melancholy. Whatever he’s doing, it works, and I found myself sad when I reached the end of his gallery so quickly.

São Paulo based architect and artist Lucas Simões has just uploaded a number of his signature fragmented geometric portraits cut from ten layers of photographs. I simply never get tired of seeing new work from him.

Christopher Jobson

St. Paul-based illustrator Colin Johnson creates these insanely intricate paper works that he dubs “hyper-collages”. Shown above is his latest piece, Effloresce, for which he also photographed a nice step-by-step series. See much more of his work on Flickr.

Jigsaw Puzzle Collages

(click for detail)

Nürnberg-based artist Gerhard Mayer re-purposes thousands of pieces from jigsaw puzzles to create enormous, abstract collages that fill entire gallery walls. He uses a delicate process of layering sections of puzzles that have already been pieced together to create new images and textures. I cannot imagine how time consuming this is.
