As the waves come crashing down on the rocky abyss of the seaside shore, the adaption of this natural creation is recreated by Matthew Cusick.

This New York City-based artist creates artwork using a collaged series of maps to express raw human emotion. This current collection from Matthew Cusick focuses on the crashing of waves from the turquoise abyss of the open waters.

The intricate work of this artist makes his work one to be noticed. By using maps to express the art he is trying to create, this expressionism is exuberantly different than if it were a painting or a photograph. By cutting out the work of old encyclopedias, textbooks, roadmaps, and atlases, this work expresses an undying love for collage mixed media.
