Glitched Collages By Giacomo Carmagnola

Words

Digital artist Giacomo Carmagnola combines the old and new to create symbolic modern images. Inspired by glitch art and writers like H.P. Lovecraft and Carlos Castaneda, he fuses symbolic photographs and figures from history with a good dose of Photoshop.

He states: “I see these images as an alternative beauty. I find it extremely fascinating how the same image can change so much by keeping its original ‘skeleton’. Of course they’re also visually impactful. But before this, I find them simply beautiful.”
