Everyone had that one friend growing up who called themselves an artist but really just glued magazine cutouts together to create collages full of celebrities and ransom note lettering.
Our old friend was making a mess more than anything else, but collage artist Albin Talik glues down hundreds of little bits of paper and together they actually look like an oil painting.
If you look closely you can see all the tiny pieces of paper Albin cut, tore or otherwise shaped to fit each element in the painting, a technique which works really well with the cityscape themes:
I love Krakow. I live in “Debniki” district. I wanted to show how beautiful this place is.
I use only paper and glue.
