Creative Collage Art

I was perusing my “Art I Like” board on Pinterest and curated this art collection on a similar theme — collage. Collage artists here use pencil shavings, old newspapers and magazines, old sheet music, recycled Metrocards or assorted recycled junk to create pleasing creations and even recognizable famous faces or artwork. Only one piece in this collection is not technically a collage, but a sculpture, but since it is made with old sheet music, as some of the other pieces, it seems to fit. I only republished pieces where I could trace the artist and credit him or her.

  1. Very nice collection. If you break the plastic bread tabs in half… you get fairy shoes or boots with the toe curled up. You might have to paint them green tough as most of mine are normally white. But the ink for the date washes off easy enough. Have you see the prom gowns made out of duct tape?

    1. That’s an interesting idea about the bread tabs. 🙂 I have seen prom gowns made from duct tape. It’s interesting to see people be so creative. Maybe, that will be another post. 🙂
