Raunchy Remixed Cover Art
These Thomas Schostok Collages are Seedy and Risque

By: Josh Triantafilou (Star) Apr 16, 12

German artist and graphic designer Thomas Schostok blends a variety of pop culture tropes in these mashup magazine covers.

From well-known television figures like Mr. T to historical events to porn-stars, the artist draws from a deep and diverse well. An undeniable (and deliberate) seediness wafts off the collages like wisps of smoke off of a cigarette. 

Despite the raunchy overtones, there is a definite thoughtfulness to the work; they capture and convey a familiar if not terribly dignified element of popular culture. Looking at the pieces makes one feel as though they’re sitting on a torn, second-hand sofa in a one-bedroom bachelor with leaky faucets in a city that has seen better days. In other words, the pieces are effective: they produce an emotional effect in the viewer.
