MOMENTS | Collage: Art Director Sato Masahiro’s Surreal Collages Blend Digital x Analog Images
We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
Tokyo-based art director Sato Masahiro, known by his moniker Q-TA uses digital and analog methods to create collages with vintage encyclopedias and magazines. His collages are beautiful bizarre, surreal works that take inspiration from childhood books and stories.
In an interview with Revolution 360, Q-TA explained his focus on childhood imagery, “I hope my audience feels some kind of nostalgia as well as surprise and elation as they feel when they read children’s books. The reason that the majority of my work has young children is that I would like to show a new way of thinking by offering the audience, children’s view of the world and also placing children in those worlds.”
Q-TA also noted that though what he creates is typically called “collage”, he aims to create neatly organized worlds over random arrangements. When he isn’t making his visual mash-ups and reconstructions, Q-TA also DJs and organizes club events.
