Collages by Karborn

Words

John Leigh aka Karborn creates detailed and dynamic mixed media work. The London-based artist combines complex digital structures with organic elements to create mind-blowing pieces in which beauty and disorder interact with Karborn’s reality. The artist himself describes his creative style as ‘Mother’s dreams. Machine’s execution. Dedicated to beauty and concept.’ His inspirations are ‘lost and found pieces of film, gifs, your silhouette, my gold, that neckline, their swagger, her smile when the arm of the tree momentarily obscured her face, Klimt, Viola, Man Ray. The so-called realities we have unimaginatively constructed and burdened this world with, the wonderful ideas I see all around me.’ Find an interview and some insights into Karborn’s studio here.
