During Project Educate we shed light on under-appreciated galleries that you may not know a great deal about – today that gallery is Collage :dummy:


1.  A technique of composing a work of art by pasting on a single surface various materials not normally associated with one another, as newspaper clippings, parts of photographs, theatre tickets, and fragments of an envelope.

2.  A work of art produced by this technique.

3.  An assemblage or occurrence of diverse elements or fragments in unlikely or unexpected juxtaposition: The experimental play is a collage of sudden scene shifts, long monologues, musical interludes, and slapstick.

4.  A film that presents a series of seemingly unrelated scenes or images or shifts from one scene or image to another suddenly and without transition.

–verb (used with object)
5.  To make a collage of: The artist has collaged old photos, cartoon figures, and telephone numbers into a unique work of art.

Collage, despite not being a popular art on deviantART, has played an incredibly significant role throughout art history and remains an important medium: Cubists such as Picasso, Braque and Gris used collaged materials including cardboard, brown paper and tickets in their paintings; Pop Artists including Richard Hamilton used collaged magazine and newspaper clippings to great satirical effect and the infamous DaDaists used collage to create absolute nonsense. Dada was arguably the most important art movement in art history, and most of it was done with collage or assemblage.

When I searched for tutorials there wasn't a single tutorial on collage. Not one. If you remedy this and make your own, please let me know :dummy: :peace:
