Austrian artist Gabi Trinkaus lives and works in Vienna. She is a widely known and exhibited artist who makes these amazing images using mixed media and collages made from magazine tear-outs.
I love the layered and frayed look of these portraits, the technique adds a kind of frailness and vulnerability to the characters. The result is slightly sad but beautiful art for your walls.
The good thing about this kind of art is that it is DIY applicable--that means you can do this too!
