100 Captivating Collages

From Cutout Advertorials to Mixed Media Photo Hybrids

— July 16, 2012 — Art & Design
Known for their exuberant use of color, texture and intricate detailing, these captivating collages aim to test visual boundaries. From layered photo collage campaigns to splattered paint portraits, the memorable masterpieces range from the visually striking to the strangely conceptual.

These dynamic art pieces are infused with imagination and detail, crafted to perfection. Artists' use of articulate detailing aids in providing their pieces with a textured quality that is both multi-dimensional and tactile.

Over-the-top and expressive, these captivating collages are created with the use of mixed media, often including photographs, paint and even unconventional materials like wood and plastic. Whether reinterpreting a classic piece of art or paving a vision for the future, the awe-inspiring artworks are bold and memorable.
