Looking at these Nicholas Lockyer artworks, you’d be tempted to think he painted these creations because of how seamlessly the elements homogenize on a page. Upon closer examination however, you’ll discover that these images are in fact collages. What’s remarkable about Lockyer’s work is that he finds bits and pieces with similar lighting conditions to add to his predominant picture, making the overall effect of a singular painted image so convincing.

Nicholas Lockyer’s work is also noteworthy because of the bizarre and out-of-place creatures he puts into his compositions. Seeing a monkey ride on the shoulder of a headless man or a turtle's appendages acting as the nose and beard of a military figure are definitely surreal sights to see. It’s as though Lockyer pulled these visuals from a dream into the tangible world. Stats for Peculiar Painterly Collages Trending: Older & Average
