Pep Ventosa takes and uses hundreds of pictures to create one masterpiece to give it a whole new visual experience. I am big fan of his Reconstructed Work in where big cities like New York, Barcelona, Paris and Amsterdam are captured in a fresh and stunning way. There is so much more on his site…take a look and decide which city will get on your wishlist…
Jelle Martens is a of young Belgian graphic artist, here he has used geometric triangle patterns combined with multiple photographs to form a series of collages.
Idris Khan uses in his work diverse cultural sources including literature, history, art, music and religion, he investigates memory, creativity and the layering of experience in his work. Idris does this by densely layering imagery to create abstract photographs.
Experiments are a collection of mostly quick low resolution concepts composed of found imagery. I really love these images because of the surreal magic in each image, by combining natural landscapes and portraits. Unlike artists like Stezaker, Matt uses digital techniques of Photoshop in place of traditional cut and paste creating hauntingly beautiful images.
Some people create images to make a statement. Others, like Matt Wisniewski, do it because it looks pretty. “It’s mostly just aesthetic,” explains the 21-year-old computer science student of his spectral photo collages. “Whatever looks nice, really.”
Art for art’s sake is no new conceit. But Wisniewski has created a particularly successful iteration by overlaying portraits with organic patterns—from flowers to jagged peaks to a Rorschach blot. He came to the combination through experimentation. “It just sort of clicked,” he says. “Natural elements tend to be a little simpler and fit together a bit more obviously with the portraits than urban elements.”
The process begins with images from Tumblr and other online portfolios. A few experimental overlays later, Wisniewski lights on something that catches his eye. “I decide that I want to go further on it and then clean that up.”

Paul uses urban cityscape environments to create his artworks, he is inspired by the abstractions of architecture and machinery in urban landscapes. By layering different photographs on top of one another subtle changes occur that can enrich or create new colours and forms and create an abstract cityscape.
“I use photography to record the meeting of the abstract and the tangible using light, shade, perspective and texture. By combining old and new objects, materials and architectural styles I invite the viewer to be curious and to investigate the imagery more closely.”
Here is a photograph by Pep Ventosa, where he has taken multiple photographs of the same subject and then layered them to create amazing work.
Here are some images of David Hockney’s work titled Joiners. Here he has created a collage by joining up several close up images to create one big picture of the entire street. The image appears to be linked with cubism with some photographs taken at different angles and hang at a slight angle.
