OMG! I totally dig this You are my Sunshine collage by Shane Wheatcraft. These are more than just collages they are succinctly engineered portraits. He uses pictures from old periodicals [dated from 1945-1975].
“I’ll often have a song or personal experience in my head that’ll become the theme of the piece,” the artist says. “I can spend hours searching for an image of the right-sized chair or person that will fit. It’s a bit like making a jigsaw puzzle and hunting for the missing pieces.”
He is represented by Lilford Gallery in Canterbury.
