Juxtapoz // Friday, September 23, 2011
Swedish artist and jeweler George Chamoun created these digital collages by merging images of contemporary movie star icons with their counterparts from the past.

We don't know much about them other than they create interesting, arresting, and visceral installation and conceptual art, applying minimal materials in the process. More videos and images after the jump . . .
