Collage Portraits

21 Aug

The Homeland promo poster has inspired me to look at other collage portraits.

ANTHONY BROWN
Artist from Liverpool

  • Oil painting portraits on newspaper cut-outs about the individual.
  • People with a unique contribution to Liverpool life
  • 100 heads. Thinking as one
  • People from recent history
  • Multi layered process of news print, magazines, books, written words and photographs. Then oil and acrylic to create the image. Almost like a visual ‘diary’ of their life.

Collage of Apple CEO Steve Jobs made completely out of Apple products.
Created with the mosaic screen saver in Leopard OS.

black and white
surreal and fragmented

DEREK GORES
Recycled magazine art Image

LUCIAN FREUD’s portraits can sometimes look like a collage because of the way they are painted. Each individual mark and brush stroke that builds up the image is visible.
