love. I’ve been scrolling page after page for half and hour and I now have a collection of 50 images in my folder…almost impossible to choose my favourite ones to post. So, you’ll just have to check out these amazing collages from…from Brazil, with love.. for yourself.
APPROPRIATE TO RECRIATE. DAILY ARTWORKS FROM THE BEST MAGAZINES AROUND THE GLOBE. STYLING THE ALREADY STYLED. DIY. WITHOUT POWER, CORRUPTION AND LIES. SINCE 2008.
In the visual arts, to appropriate means to adopt, borrow, recycle or sample aspects (or the entire form) of man-made visual culture. The term appropriation refers to the use of borrowed elements in the creation of a new work (as in ‘the artist uses appropriation’) or refers to the new work itself (as in ‘this is a piece of appropriation art’). The artist who uses appropriation may borrow image, sound, objects, forms or styles from art history or [(popular culture)] or other aspects of man made visual culture. Inherent in the process of appropriation is the fact that the new work recontextualizes whatever it borrows to create the new work. In most cases the original ‘thing’ remains accessible as the original, without change. And here’s it’s from Brazil, with love.
