Exquisite Surreal Collages by Sammy Slabbinck
Although surreal collage work has regained popularity within the last decade in contemporary culture, few artists have mastered its beauty and artistry. Belgian artist Sammy Slabbinck began deconstructing vintage ads and images since 2009.
Slabbinck carefully choreographs multiple images to create a newly decontextualized photography. With humor present in every piece, Slabbinck’s surreal imagery often features astronomical aspects and psychedelic visions. Following a 70s aesthetic, the artist creates a beautiful juxtaposition, which is often portrayed as a story in mid-sentence.
His work was recently featured at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London with a series of collages, which featured vintage Playboy editorials and other vintage publications. His work is for sale on Society6.
