Tony Fitzpatrick Visually Tells Stories In His Collages

If these images look familiar to you that's because I have featured Tony Fitzpatrick's collages before here. Chicago based artist creates these large mixed media collages inspired by his surroundings, comic books and religious imagery. Each one is a combination of hand-drawn images and text arranged after being cut from game ticket stubs, matchbooks, playing cards, postcards and wrappers. Through the medium of these collages he continues to tell stories about Chicago and his own story in the city.

He shared here - "I think the idea of the drawing collages is to suggest many narrative possibilities. To suggest a lot of narrative veins, a lot of stories happening at once. They’re more like a diary."

You can learn more about his work, upcoming shows and announcements on Instagram.
