As the art of collage, particularly in the realm of fashion, has become more and more ubiquitous in the last decade, it is consequently more difficult than ever to find truly original interpretations of the craft. Enter Ernesto Artillo, a 26 year-old artist based in Madrid, Spain, whose deceptively simple collage creations transcend the modern cult of the fashion supermodel as timeless works of art, combining ancient Grecian aesthetics of beauty with contemporary graphic restraint and abstraction.

Multi-disciplinary artist Jock Mooney produces psychedelic pop images and installations, most recently focusing on the aesthetic possibilities of paper collage. Using thousands of hand drawn elements and deliberately spurning the use of xeroxed copies, his kaleidoscopic collages are inspired by a combined obsession for Japanese prints, 60's underground comics, and the Italian gialli genre of filmmaking, the latter heavily informing the often convoluted and pompous titles of his work.

Maybe its cheating with celebrities, but these photo collage portraits by Maurizio Galimberti are quite stunning on a big monitor screen. The photographer is famous for his Polaroid collage portraits, and currently has work on view at the Palazzo Franchetti in Venice that are more Italian landscape works. But this series is something to get lost in today... never-ending wormhole of views here.

He uses the artifacts that people have left behind and attempts to find a relationship between the things he has cut from old playing cards, prescription labels, postcards, matchbooks, and magazines.
