Burry Buermans – Collages

Collage is a technique of an art production. It is primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms to create a new whole.

A collage may sometimes include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.

The term collage derives from the French “coller” meaning “glue”. This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.

There are many forms of collages each made out of different material and images to create a complete piece of artwork. Personally I find collages to be very interesting. I think Burry Buermans technique to a collage is engaging because he has his own spin to it, as you will see in the following video.
