Acrylic and paper collage on canvas
2 artworks
Acrylic and paper collage on canvas blends painting and paper craft, creating diverse textures and images. Originating in the early 20th century with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque's Cubist artworks, this technique uses adhesive to fix cut or torn paper pieces onto canvas. Artists then apply acrylic paint, a quick-drying, versatile medium invented in the mid-20th century. The combination enhances visual interest and can abstractly represent reality or create surrealistic scenes. Though traditional, the technique remains popular, continuously evolving through modern artists' innovative interpretations.
