Recently we introduced you to the work of collage artist, Chad Wys — this created all sorts of nostalgia here at Charlie HQ, reminiscing about the collages we used to make as a child. Inspired by the quote we posted from Pablo Picasso (whom, by the way, is always known for some amazing collage work), it was a no brainer to make collage art our next Creative Challenge.
Wikipedia defines collage as, “a technique of art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.” A new whole! Aaah I’m so geeked about this challenge already!
To help get you started, we’ve highlighted a few of our favorite collage artists in the gallery above to offer you inspiration. Get out your scissors, glue, magazines, ribbons, photographs, and if you’re feeling extra crafty, mod podge and let your creativity run rampant.
Upload your work in the comments below and be sure to include your name, age, email address, website and/or Twitter. Our Editors will select their favorites and will feature you and your work here on youmeandcharlie.com! This Creative Challenge will end December 16, 2012 — you have 2 weeks to create your masterpiece. Looking forward to seeing your work and discovering new collage artists!
*EDITOR’S NOTE: Your submissions must be original. By uploading your work, you attest that you are the original creator of the collage and have the exclusive right to submit your work to YM&C.
