Why don’t you give your following list an upgrade by adding to it some of the most interesting, inspiring, and impressive visual artists of the moment. One of our most popular article series “Who to Follow” from the past few years is back, as we scour through the depths of Instagram to find and discover the most creative and “follow-worthy” accounts for your enjoyment and delight.
Collage artists are a special breed among the creative species, as they often follow no rules or specific practices, yet manage to create something new and intriguing from existing pieces of work. Call it a fresh perspective, or a new point of view, but collage artists seem to be able to take apart and rebuilt images as a neverending and reshaping puzzle. Utilizing cut, torn, or ribbed magazines, newspaper clippings, advertisements, books, and illustrations, adding paint, bits of colored or handmade paper, headlines, texts, photographs, textiles, or found objects – the artist lays out a composition of overlaying images and materials, remixing re-contextualizing, and rebuilding something new from the fragments of old.
We’ve curated 32 talented collage artists whose work inspires and excites us at the moment, with the hope of you discovering new creatives to love and learn from – make sure to click on the nametag to see more of the artist’s work in question, and give them a follow!
