The work of Douglas Hale will spiral people into another dimension where faces fall off, women blow out birds in place of smoke and a range of other fantastical situations. Although there is a retro element to each piece, Douglas Hale ensures there's an overall contemporary aesthetic many modern individuals would appreciate. Hanging these up in the den will inspire a ton of imagination and creativity.

Trendland writes how Douglas Hale "uses contemporary graphic styles to produce fantasy landscapes and unusual profiles, combining tribal and mythological references in contrasting tones beautifully strange scenarios." It's interesting to see the juxtaposition of so many different ideas and imagery in one seamless work of art. Collages tend to make the impossible possible through such unique associations and that is what many people are drawn to.
