Oooh, how I love John McAllister‘s pattern collages – so inspiring!
Go and take a look at Arians awesome collages here!
“Arian is currently a Biological Sciences major with an emphasis in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior at UC Davis. In between classes he does personal and commissioned visual design work. He has always found parallels between art and the sciences so a lot of his studies find their way into his artwork. Aside from design work, Arian interns at the Same Day Surgery Center at the UCD Medical Center and does research at the Carraway/Sweeney Cancer Lab.”
This is the most beautiful photo album I’ve ever seen! I’m totally thrilled! I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I did! All collages were part of this impressive “Playing with Pictures: The Art of Victorian Photocollage” exhibition at The Art Institute of Chicago a while ago.
