Torn Photograph Collages by Keun Young Park

We all know what collages are and how they typically look like, so one look at the works of a Korean artist will perhaps bewilder you. Are those really collages, or something else? Find out after the jump!

Collages, by strict definition, are made from an assemblage of different forms or materials to create something new, so the works of New Jersey-based Korean artist Keun Young Park certainly fit the bill. However, it’s what he uses to make his collages that I found amazing. Using torn bits and pieces of photographs, Keun creates intricate and uniquely textured portraits and images. Every masterpiece alludes to the fragility of human existence…or something like that.

I am actually at a loss for words to describe Keun’s fascinating work, I honestly haven’t seen anything like it yet. Each work of art pushes the concept of collaging to extreme, don’t you think?

If you fancy taking a look at some more clever collages, the work of Agnes Montgomery might mesmerize you as well!

All photos and information for this article were sourced from Empty Kingdom and Keun Young Park’s Website.

    Amazing! So creative how he has selected just important parts of the images. Glad you show us things like this - so much better than some of the trite images around today.
