Lively Digital Collages are Channeling 20th-Century Aesthetics
Inspired by the surrealists and mid-century children’s books, illustrator Martin Haake creates collages bustling with life. The stylized compositions utilize a bevy of textures, including the written word and carefree brush strokes. While they might class, Martin masterfully places the disparate elements together so they sing in harmony. In doing this, he lets the content of the images do the talking. They feature scenes that you’ve got to carefully study to fully appreciate. There’s a lot going on beyond the foreground that makes them a compelling look.
