Combining painting and photography, artist Gerhard Richter created 'Ãœbermalte Fotografien' (that's a mouthful), a collection of photographs which are then painted over to create dramatic colored canvases.

The 'Ãœbermalte Fotografien' collection from Gerhard Richter is a perfect combination of painting and photography, bringing the colors of painting to some otherwise basic photographs. Take a look at the fun collection from Gerhard Richter above.

Implications - The featured artworks by Gerhard Richter give a creative example of combining two different mediums. Advertisers who combine mediums such as paint and photography within their advertisements will attract the attention of consumers because it is out of the ordinary. Ads that are out of the ordinary stand out from the crowd and will catch the eye of those who come across it.
