Collage art

Lately I have been seeing more and more collage art appearing everywhere – while I like a good mashup of style, colour, technique and media, a lot of this new stuff is really quite average. Not so are the clever collage pieces being created by Paris based ( Ma + Chr ).

( Ma + Chr ) is an art and design studio founded by Mathilde Aubier and Christine Delaquaize. Their light hearted, fresh and simple approach is most evident in their Baignade & Parasol collection. Don’t you just love the colours and whimsy of the original photos used.

I couldn’t resist including their crazy cat collection (which I first spotted on Happiness is). Isn’t it silly how adding some human eyes to a really naff kitty photo never fails to entertain. I think my favourite is the last one, the shot with the very nervous looking dog. So cute!

You can see more of ( Ma + Chr ) here.
Do check out Happiness Is too, it’s full of magical goodness.

    I’m always excited by a contemporary spin on vintage goodness, so these are perfectly up my street! Love. Thanks for sharing, Jo.

      Thanks Megan, I totally agree (trust the Parisians to get it right!)
