Political Magazine Collages
"Words of Hope" Obama Portrait

By: Pearl (Star) Oct 5, 08

Seth Balliett is a seasoned veteran of torn-paper portraits. One of his latest works is “Words of Hope.” This collage is entirely comprised of articles and headlines about the 2008 presidential campaign from Time Magazine (February-September 2008), torn and arranged to form a portrait of Barack Obama. The artist wanted to “recount HOPE this campaign has instilled in many Americans.”

The Papertocanvas website allows the viewer to move a magnifying glass to read the actual lines the artist chose. 10% of the proceeds of the limited-edition print goes to the Obama for America fund.
