Bryan Olson's portfolio includes collages made out of various vintage images that are made into intriguingly surreal compositions. A lot of his work is thought-provoking and involves cosmic elements.

The collages have a handful of layers and that are not overly detailed. This gives the artwork a conceptual quality that is clever and meaningful. A naked body crushed under a full moon and the collage depicting an elder's face as a hand and emphasizing the meaning of the work with the simple addition of the word 'touch' are both great examples of this.

The artist's work includes nicely composed negative colors that stand out stunningly. The vintage theme, on the other hand, is aesthetically intriguing.
