Oldie but goldie! Collage (for me) is all about mixing weird shit putting in a new context to create new ideas. Seeing old things always makes me feel how different I made things on the past, which is great because I’m always moving and looking for new ways of making my stuff, but not so good because I always wonder: Who the f**k is Max? #collage #collageart #collageartist #collageillustration #collageartwork #collagear #collagestash #collagemaker #digitalcollage #collagelife #collageoftheday #contemporarycollage #contemporaryart #theweirdshow

As I wrote earlier on this week, I'm curating Cut Me Up's fourth issue. I'm really excited about it. Here's my call for submission, hoping it moves you to grab your cutting weapons of choice and start working to submit your work (check link in bio). "Now: Burning Bridges to the Past. After being one of the most defining elements of 20th century contemporary art, collage has slowly, but persistently, lost its revolutionary aspects. It has become something shallower and emptier: an aesthetic. Collage, for many, is more a fixed combination of pre-defined elements (vintage, surreal, funny, etc.) than a medium that provides endless freedom to turn ideas into images in infinite ways. Cut Me Up is a direct attack on this stale state of collage. Having to use collage as the main source to create more collage forces a fresh approach. Reappropriation of contemporary artworks, as opposed to forgotten cultural relics, compels us to examine our relationships to the materials we work with. It forces a breaking away from habitual patterns. In the process of transforming contemporary works the Cut Me Up audience shifts roles — the viewer/consumer of contemporary culture becomes the creator. For Cut Me Up: Issue 4, I’d like to extend these ideas and unleash the possibilities of collage to respond to the present moment. Inspired by the innovative and radical spirit of the DADA movement, I encourage dynamic responses to contemporary culture through critique and social commentary." ··· #art #artwork #artzine #artmagazine #artbook #cutandpaste #paper #mixedmedia #worksonpaper #collageart #analogcollage #decollage #contemporarycollage #contemporaryart #abstract #exhibition #artgallery #artcollector #artcollection #painting #cutmeupmagazine

After my vacations I've been working hard in new illustration projects. This is great because it also means that my on-going project about digital scraps keeps on evolving. This is a new piece I made with digital scraps that I made last week. Cannot love more the shapes I found cutting up other images. 100% power of randomness! #collage #collageart #collageartist #collageillustration #collageartwork #collagear #collagestash #collagemaker #digitalcollage #collagelife #collageoftheday #contemporarycollage #contemporaryart #theweirdshow

I'm stoked because I was invited by Andrea Burgay ( @amburgay ) to curate Cut Me Up´s fourth issue! Cut me up ( @cutmeupmagazine ) is a project that I really love and had the chance to talk about it a while ago at The Weird Show (check Andrea´s interview on TWS´s site) and now I'm thrilled to be taking part of the project curating this issue along with Andrea! So, go to CMU's website (link in my bio) and read the submission guidelines and take part of this amazing project. Hope to see your work submitted!!! #art #artwork #artzine #artmagazine #artbook #cutandpaste #paper #mixedmedia #worksonpaper #collageart #analogcollage #decollage #contemporarycollage #contemporaryart #abstract #exhibition #artgallery #artcollector #artcollection #painting #cutmeupmagazine

Haute. Paper collage from the Jungle series exhibited at the International Weird Collage Show Barcelona. Love this series as much as I hate working with fashion images when collaging. This love hate combination makes something certainly special ✊🏻💀😊 #collage #collageart #collageartist #collageillustration #collageartwork #collagear #collagestash #collagemaker #collageonpaper #collagelife #barcelona #fashionph #collageoftheday #contemporarycollage #contemporaryart #theweirdshow
