These amazing pieces of psychedelic pop art from the 'CitizenOfThePlanet' collection are the work of German artist, Martin Denker.

Denker's boldly colored digital collages also feature surrealist and science fiction influences, and are created by weaving together up to 50 photographic layers to form the incredibly complex final image.

He obtains pictures from a diverse variety of sources including the news, film-stills, literature, graffiti, architecture and advertising.

Implications - Denker finds his inspiration in many things including Buddhism, traffic, video games and the many bright colors in candy shops. He feels that you can find inspiration in absolutely anything, if you just look. Denker is an inspiration and he will surely be looked up to by aspiring young artists.
