Dolan Geiman's Amazing Paper Collages


I have featured Dolan Geiman's amazing metal wall artwork before here. Today's post is to showcase his equally incredible paper collages. Chicago based mixed media artist uses paper from repurposed and found vintage magazines to make the detailed artwork. The discolored and faded paper give his work a nostalgic quality. He hand-cuts thousands of tiny paper and layers them to make each large-scale collage. He carefully combines paper pieces based on their color and texture to make animals' fur and feathers.

I wish I could see his work in person but if you are in the area and don't want to miss the chance of taking a closer look at his artwork then mark your calendar for La Quinta Arts Festival, La Quinta, CA from March 1 through 4, 2018. To view more of his work you can go his website and on Instagram.
