Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera creates beautiful scenes on the basis of drawing, collage and watercolor. Telling stories about people, animals, and how they interact with their surroundings, Herrera likes to include a touch of irony and melancholy by playing with the size of things and spaces.

Our relation to images is conditioned by the various pictorial conventions of Western culture. Paris and Berlin-based artist Nadira Husain addresses them in her work, albeit decidedly not from a traditional Western male perspective. Her generally figurative pictures display the influence of both Indian miniatures and the feminist theoretical apparatus.

We are enjoying the (UN) Bonded Project of collages by Marcelo Monreal, mainly because we too get a little bored of the typical fashion shoot. These are fun interpretations and remixes of fashion shoots, with a little floral vibe thrown in...

Matt Gonzalez’s work is collage-based, utilizing bits of discarded paper products—from advertisements to cardboard containers—that he finds while walking around the city. Most of his compositions feature a highly layered, rectilinear aesthetic that recalls the gridded city streets he traverses and architectural matrixes he passes through...

Psychedelic Gravy for the Receptive Mind is a solo exhibition of new works by New York-based artist Sebastian Wahl at Joseph Gross Gallery in NYC. Sebastian Wahl carefully places handmade papers and images between layers and layers of resin. The result is a collage time capsule with real shadows cast within each piece. “Collage is my medium, resin is just the gravy on top”, says the artist.

Brian Adam Douglas (aka ELBOW-TOE) uses a unique cut paper and collage technique he calls 'paper painting.' Painting individual parts of paper, he carefully cuts them and sticks them to a wooden panel to create the final painting-like composition. "Forgoing the relative ease and fluidly of the brush stroke, the artist methodically builds his compositions through shards of color incised from sheets of paper..."

Life, identity, reality, status quo, intention and purpose... From very young, Luis Toledo, or La Prisa Mata, has explored our inquisitive reality, analyzing the hidden meaning of every image, and dissecting the mystery of beauty. As a meticulous collector, he gathers illustrations, textures, and fragments to create and built his images from. I recently ran into a series of works from Toledo 'Humans', depicting the form and figure in his usual insanley intricate and detailed collage process.
