Artist Ernesto Artillo creates thought-provoking collages that will inspire people to question their surroundings and, ultimately, their existence. Anais Nin, an American author born in France, was quoted by the blog But Does It Float to better flesh out the surreal artworks: "Worlds self made are so full of monsters and demons." Ernesto Artillo's constructed and deconstructed imagery speaks to that sentiment perfectly.
Relying on images of religious iconography and ancient gods alongside typical fashion editorials, Ernesto Artillo cuts and pastes arresting artworks that will have people staring for hours on end. Full of personal struggles and questions of identity, Ernesto Artillo's collages may be abstract, but that quality helps people to identify with them in more intimate and personal ways. Nothing is black and white with Ernesto Artillo's works of art.
