£100.00 – £250.00
Paper Collage portrait, 2016 Madrid.
Prints are printed on Hahnemühle smooth photo rag 300g paper
This is a collage made with black and white prints form magazines and assembled with cello tape.
The original’s measurements are 21 x 29,7 cm. This “misunderstood artist” cubist portrait illustrate the fact that Art is a tricky way to express yourself: Even if people like what you do, they don’t often understand what you mean. They see what they want to see.
I used cello tape instead of glue like recomposing a portrait which had been torn up.
On the larger versions you may see dust and weft of the prints used. this is intended and is part of the original work. However, the printable version have been retouched by the artist to erase some unwanted elements.
