Seattle-based artist Mary Iverson’s work is a mash-up of painting and collage, filling natural and manmade landscapes with brightly colored shipping containers.

MOMENTS | Collage: Joe Webb Combines Two Elements to Create Surreal Collage Narratives in His “Paper Cuts” Exhibition

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Former graphic artist Joe Webb turned to collage as a reaction to his years of working as a digitally inclined artist. Webb combines cutouts of original work with vintage magazines and printed ephemera but only uses two elements in each piece. He found collage “more immediate and graphic than painting” and approaches each piece with the goal of “reinventing the original scene trying to find a narrative through the process.” Last week, Webb debuted his new Paper Cuts exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery. Paper Cuts will be on display until April 6th.

Above, the prolific—and anonymous—California born, London-based artist loves creating unique works that combine mediums that span from classic spray-painting to video installations.

And sure enough, the round vinyl-like visual of the pieces have a very street art-meets-music vibe.

In his Body Language exhibition, Matthew Stone, London-based artist, took sculptural cubes and linked them to collage art with cut-and-paste photographs of the human body. The photographs, which were also shot by Stone, used the interplay of light and darkness “to invoke and create history, rather than to document it”.
The collaged sculptures of the human body in Body Language were a rejection of simple binaries. Instead, the cut-and-paste bodies represented the conflicting realities in our politically and religiously polarized world.
