Guy Catling’s Eye-Catching Collages Tackle Conflict Imagery

Scroll

Young British graphic designer Guy Catling creates collages that combined vintage black-and-white photographs, often depicting images of war, with bright patterned details.

Employing an experimental style that calls into question the aesthetics of conflict, Catling juxtaposes the triste scenes in the old photos he uses as backdrops with selected elements of contrasting color. The result is a series of textured, layered and eye-catching artworks. The Pyramids are depicted in floral wallpaper, soldiers’ helmets are patterned in pastel florals and helicopters become bright beacons in the sky.
