Take a look at the work of British artist Alexandra Gallagher, whose stunning, dream-like multi-layered collages draw on issues of feminine identity and sexuality. Her use of geometric shapes and flowers define her pieces, giving them a strikingly modern appearance while simultaneously evoking a Surrealist style.
The nostalgic work of Australian-born Kareem Rizk. Rizk has cultivated a highly distinctive style of collage over his years as a mixed media artist which has gained him recognition on an international scale. Nostalgia plays a key role in his beautifully warm-toned works which feature vintage materials such as postcards and book clippings to transport you back to a time period you may have never even lived.
Browse the work of Robert Pereira Hind whose unique works change in appearance as they mature with time. His mixed media series Out of Eden evolves in colour as it oxidises over time, and the moody sky backdrops of these pieces will bring colour and depth to any setting.

Collage is the term used to describe art in which pieces of paper, photographs, fabric and other ephemera are arranged and stuck down onto a supporting surface. The term derives from the French ‘papiers collés’ which stands for the technique of pasting paper cut-outs onto various surfaces. Collage pieces can be assembled from various forms of mixed media such as photographs, fabric, coloured and textured paper and mixed media. Many artists combine painting, drawing and photo techniques with collage to create mixed media works of both representational and abstract forms. Many also include three-dimensional elements that give a unique texture to the piece.
The collage art form places greater significance upon the concept and the techniques used to create pieces of art, rather than upon the end result itself. The key technique of collage making is the cutting of various pre-existing materials, from newspaper clippings to textiles and found objects, and pasting them upon a range of surfaces.
This technique is built upon by artists creating photo collages using photomontage techniques with both physical and digital photographs. Meanwhile, others incorporate traditional art forms such as painting and drawing to create more complex, textured pieces.
In order to further emphasise the process of collage making, some artists harness chance procedures such as randomly arranging pieces to create a more spontaneous composition. Some make use of the technique known as ‘decoupage’, in which layers of cut-outs are arranged to form an image. Others use ‘assemblage’, the technique in which real objects are used to produce three-dimensional collages. Many modern-day artists make use of various digital formats in their artistic practice.
