Naomi emailed me a few weeks ago introducing me to her work. Guys. INSTANT CRUSH. I'm a sucker for collage. I'm tellin' ya, collage is in right now...
Naomi is an Italian artist who lives in Dublin, Ireland. She creates new interpretations of vintage photos using pens, paper, colored tape, and stickers.
I love the juxtaposition (yay art history jargon!) of the drab & dingy vintage photos with such bright bold colors. The bursts of color add so much life to the photos, don't you think? Plus, the way Naomi applies these colorful additions gives each photo a whole new abstract story. The original photo is completely transformed and made anew.
What do you think? Do you have an art crush on Naomi's collages, too? So awesome, right?
