Inspired by: Virginia Echeverria Whipple
I wonder if collage is one of those things that people look and think 'well I could do that' - but I really think there is such a skill to it. You need to have a real talent at composition and colour to get the piece looking just right. Yes most people can glue and stick, but that is not enough.
I was really blown away by some of these pieces of work by Virginia Echeverria Whipple. I find the images and colours that people find and then put together to make something new so interesting. I guess collage is the ultimate form of recycling.
I have picked some of my favourites below that really struck me but you can check out more of her work here. I really like how her website is set up in collections of work - so you can see how things have developed and progressed in her work over time!
Collage is on my never ending list of things I want to try out and experiment with - if it ever happens I promise I will share it here! Have you seen that Laura from Cardboardcities has set up a new instagram account called collagescraps? Check it out it is a colour explosion.
