When working with an original, it’s important to put you’re own spin on it and Valero Doval certainly does with his unique collages. As Katie Olsen writes, he takes "kitsch, retro, traditional, even Victorian images and work[s] them over with simple geometric shapes that completely change the original."

Valero Doval turns pups into peculiar (but still cute) circus animals, antiquated portraits become clownish harlequins and other art forms are similarly played with. All the while his experimental collages maintain symmetry, creating a crazy yet cohesive oeuvre for the Spanish artist. Stats for Geometric Collages Trending: Older & Chilly
