We are enjoying the work of Bjorn Copeland this morning. 'Copeland guts and recombines found materials into psychotropic Pop assemblages. Having founded the experimental noise-rock band Black Dice while studying at RISD, Copeland's artistic and musical careers have developed simultaneously. A crossing of audio and visual ways of thinking have become almost second nature to him; when conceiving of Pop, it is with Paolozzi-style collages, DIY record covers, 50’s rock-and-roll and pop-electronic beats in mind.'

Taking hundreds of tiny photographs, gelatin capsules, vials, insect pins, and other "specimens," artist Michael Mapes collages his own interpretation of renowned dutch portraits. Using the paintings of Rembrandt, Nicolaes Eliasz PIckenoy, and others, Mapes recreates the work in painstaking detail using the tiny fragments and pins.

We first saw the Ulysses series by Miles Donovan in London back in 2012 and thought we would take a look back at the fantastic collages, a "series of images from the missing space probe Ulysses." Great collage ideas, juxtaposing images of deep space with those of both the common tourist and street scenes. Perhaps we will see some space tourists in 2014...

Under the artists’ name Ghost of a Dream, Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom started a collaborative project in New York, where the two artists live. Based on collages and large scale objects, their strongly visual works revolve around promises of wealth offered by the lottery. Lottery tickets are pasted everywhere inGhost of a Dream’s work. These scratched tickets carry real dreams that mostly disappear just as quickly as they come

We've featured the currency collage work of Brooklyn-based artist Mark Wagner before. Wagner sees the dollar bill as "the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America." Using his well known collage skills, the artist has created some intricate and fantastic currency collages using the dollar bill. This morning we take a look at this beautifult video of the artist by The Avante Garde Diaries...

With an already established career in animation, we are really into these wood collage pieces by Atlanta-based artist Drew Tyndell. Taking wood pieces, painting them with various structural and abstract geometric patterns, and then collage the wood pieces together, Tyndell takes his skill as animator and applies it to handmade, physical art. He is currently showing at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in the group show, Co/exist.

Earlier this year in Singapore, Juxtapoz went to the opening of California conceptual artist John Baldessari with the gallery Michael Janssen, and of course, you remember that Mr Baldessari interviewed Tom Waits for our very special October 2013 cover story. We have had almost a full year of appreciating the artist, and we wish we could be in Berlin to see the tail end of his newest work at Sprüth Magers. But, if you need a little help with Baldessari, we just saw this Jason Schwartzman video helping to explain the artist to you... so you got Berlin art, and older Schwartzman video...

Canadian artist Geoffrey Farmer's sculpture collage 'Leaves of Grass' takes cultural icons and images from five decades (1935-1985) and 900 issues of LIFE Magazine. It spans 124 feet. "It wasn’t until we had finished making the work that I realized the piece is very much about factory life. Factory farming, the war factory, the death factory, the automobile factory, the Hollywood factory, the personality factory…. History emerging out of a factory. In the end, it takes on the appearance of a conveyor belt."

German artist Thomas Kellner's photomontages are created by taking a series of pictures with a film camera step-by-step and layer-by-layer so that the final result is a de-constructed mosaic of a distorted building.
