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. The containers—which constitute the painted portion of the works—are overlaid with a pattern of lines and interrupt the otherwise serene natural landscapes.

MOMENTS | Collage: Artist Wildcat Will Creates Modern Collages Inspired by the Rebellious Spirit of the Folies Bergère

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

Multi-disciplinary pop artist and musician William Blanchard, aka Wildcat Will, has been creating modern day collages inspired by the demi-monde of the Parisian cabarets of the Folies Bergère. His collages are comprised of cut outs of topless girls against animal print and text, overlaid on butterfly backdrops—all of which combines the artist’s love of painting, graphics and typography. Blanchard has spent the last 20 years creating art that reflects his understanding of contemporary urban life. On his more recent collages, the artist explains, “In a way, becoming a drummer is the modern day equivalent of joining the circus, a fantasy removed from normal life. The Belle Epoque period was the rock ‘n’ roll of its time. I wanted to produce work that had a correlation to the kind of duality that I have experienced.” His exhibition, Love Is Like A Butterfly will be on display at the Beautiful Crime gallery from July 9th onward.
