Mesmerizing Medusa Collages

{SummaryTitle}

The legend goes that you should avoid eye contact with Medusa at all costs, but if gorgons looked anything like these Javier Pinon collages, I wouldn’t be able to help myself.

Using vintage photographs of pin-ups and pictures of snakes, Pinon seamlessly crafts mildly horrifying images in the likeness of the ancient Greek monsters. It’s actually quite remarkable how well he paired his images as the lighting conditions of each piece almost sell the pictures as being originals. Add to that the various expressions that each pin-up model makes and you have a series that’s certified “eye-candy.”

As for Javier Pinon himself, he is a Brooklyn-based artist who regularly exhibits his work in galleries across America.
