Contemporary collage art, as many fans of the famed Saatchi Gallery know, is trending now online at the gallery’s wonderfully entertaining website. In fact, the current display of collage creations – that some have dubbed “weird assemblage artworks” – is yet another great example of why the Saatchi Gallery remains on the cutting edge of today’s art scene. The gallery is credited with presenting innovative art from young and international artists whose work is not often on exhibit in the UK and elsewhere.
Collage art breaks glass ceiling
Imagine a primetime art exhibit dedicated to the art of collage? While many traditionalists may frown at such an idea – due to the fact that collage art is still a fairly newly discovered art form – collage art is hugely popular today. In fact, the popularity is due to the creative techniques exhibited by dozens of featured collage artists who are now featured both online and on display at the Saatchi Gallery.
For instance, the collage artists displaying their creations at Saatchi include:
- An artwork titled “Intuition” by American artist Brandi Strickland who says she creates “small-scale works of art using techniques of hand-cut collage, painting & drawing.”
- An artwork titled “Death like a slice of bread” by the trendy Polish artist Nestow Sakachzbia that mirrors this earnest artist who blends the past with the present in stunning political-theme creations.
- “Disjointed” by Mary Roucefield of the UK in which she explains this collage art as being something very special.
