Already a fixture in the world of mixed media artwork, Sammy Slabbinck's new artwork series is full of quirky and cheeky pop culture references mixed with his known vintage touches.

Influenced by vintage magazines, Slabbinck always finds a way to incorporate retro images into his modern mixed media artwork.

Using subdued colors and eclectic images that he so masterfully layers, Slabbinck's playful work is the ultimate mix of old-school images and new-age technologies -- and he makes it work so harmoniously.

The Belgian artist uses muted tones and surreal compositions to give his artwork a dynamic collage print feel. By combining his love for vintage photographs and contemporary compositional styles, Slabbinck's mixed media artwork always looks different.
