Recycled Magazines Collage Art / Derek Gores

Recycled Magazines Collage Art By Derek Gores - 01
 Recycled Magazines Collage Art  

The New York-born, but now Melbourne-based commercial designer takes old magazines, labels and other materials and recycles them into impressive collage artworks. He hand rips the magazines, maps or schematics and puts them together randomly to create impressive collages focused mostly on women and female fashion.

Gores starts the process by having a photo shoot and editing his shots digitally. Gores then tears up recycled magazines, labels, and other found materials. Then, Gores puts the torn-up material onto the canvas. The end result is a jumbled-looking portrait laden with detail. Looking closely at his work, you will find quotes, numbers, people, signs, and other images.

His list of clients includes Lucasfilm, U2, Sublime, the NFL, ESPN, Major League Baseball, and Reebok. Currently, he is working on five of his signature collage pieces for the new Orlando Magic arena, and some other works of art for New Contemporary Movement exhibition at the London Miles Gallery.

Bio:
