The first collage contest went really well, i was happy to see all the amazing artworks and read the interesting stories behind each one of them. The second contest is ready and i am hoping that through the artworks we will create an ongoing dialogue, express our creativity and our feelings. Imagination is the most important tool and to be a great collage artist means that you are a great thinker first of all. And you must, because 80 percent of the artistic process takes place in your mind. A thinker who is sensitive enough to judge what is important and what is not, a seeker of what is unique, rare and different, a composer who gives a sense of unity to all these diverse elements and finally an artist that gives birth this mental process.
Collage is an easy medium for artists or creatives to express themselves with simple tools or basic knowledge of Photoshop. This leaves a lot of room for the imagination and in my opinion this is the reason why collage is such an important medium. In a way you exercise your imagination to think of impossible combinations, to alter the real and make it surreal and dreamy. Cutting, arranging and pasting your favourite images together is a relaxing process and in time if you are persistent you can find you own style.
Handcut collage example.
Same as the first contest there will be no theme just use your imagination and try to create a composition of images that pleases you aesthetically or have a message to convey to the viewer. As source material you can use images that you own, magazine clippings or images you found on the Internet, as long as you are not violating in rules of copyrights. I would suggest this Library of free images as a good way to start your collage adventures.
