The Alchemy of Collage

 In the art world, collage is a technique that is also known as “alchemy.

 It has a deep methodological history (a method of combining books, newspaper clippings, and miscellaneous objects around us) and can be traced back to China around 200 BC.

 The fact that it became established as a genre of fine art is probably due to the dramatic movement of the surrealists in the 20th century, and the coining of the term “collage” by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso at the same time.

 Since then, the collage technique has been developed in various ways such as assemblage and photomontage without interruption until now, but in recent years, the development of technology has given birth to a new field. This is digital collage.

In this article, I would like to introduce some of the artists who create digital collages.
