"Art is an evolutionary act. The shape of art and its role in society is constantly changing. At no point is art static. There are no rules." - Raymond Salvatore Harmon
One of the most intriguing visuals for me is an old wall layered with peeling paint, faded wall papers, graffiti, posters and text - the kind of wall that really shows you its history through all of those layers of decay. The longer you linger the more hidden imagery you'll find.
In this two-day workshop we'll focus our attention on photo montages collaged together with typography and hand drawn elements to incorporate the textured lives of a generation. Urban collage combines the edge of street art and the textures of graffiti with traditional art mediums to incorporate a vast array of visual art forms.
We'll be transforming the fodder of images from your everyday life into something gritty, tactile and exciting. Bring along your scraps of paper, printed flyers, and graffiti and through a combination of collage, image transfers, tons of textures, mark making and paint, we'll unify all of these elements creating expressive mixed media artworks.
