Cecil Touchon was born in 1956 in Austin, Texas and holds a BFA in painting from UTA – University of Texas at Arlington. Touchon has been working in collage since the mid 1970’s and started his well known widely collected Fusion Series of collage art in 1983. To the present he has produced some 3,500 collages. Touchon maintains studios in Pagosa Springs, Colorado USA and in Tepoztlan, a small colonial town an hour south of Mexico City, Mexico. Touchon is also involved with the Visual Poetry, Fluxus and international Mail Art communities. In the mid 1990’s Touchon founded what is known as the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction – a project using the idea of a museum as a grand assemblage. Through the use of the internet, open collection policy and the generous help of collage/assemblage artists all over the world Touchon has amassed a collection well in excess of 10,000 works of collage and assemblage art intended for preservation and study. He recently has opened this unique collection to the public in the small mountain town of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Through the museum project Touchon has been instrumental in increasing the awareness of the art of collage and assemblage and in fostering the development of the global community of collage and assemblage artists we have seen emerging over the last decade.

Mazuka currently lives, studies and produces your artworks in São Carlos (São Paulo, Brazil). Seeks to express the tension that exists in the dymanic balance between harmony and conflict, through the ressignificance of images and colors. Mazuka believes in the social construction of reality, and the social assignment of meaning to things in the world, as reflected in his artworks in a procedure that simultaneously resignifies, exposes and controverts ideas and values. “At the same time we have our intimate moments of creative glimpses, we are also immersed in a society that’s increasingly global that, on the one hand forces us in a position of passive bestialized, on the other gives us small spaces to manifest our views. Our artwork is one of this ‘privileged’ spaces”.
Mazuka atualmente mora, estuda e produz seus trabalhos na cidade de São Carlos, SP. Procura expressar a tensão que existe no equilíbrio dinâmico entre a harmonia e o conflito, através da ressignificação de imagens e cores. Mazuka acredita na construção social da realidade e na atribuição social de sentido às coisas do mundo, o que se reflete em suas obras em um procedimento que ao mesmo tempo ressignifica, expõe e questiona ideias e valores. “Ao mesmo tempo que temos nossos momentos íntimos de lampejos criativos, também estamos mergulhados numa sociedade cada vez mais globalizada que, se por um lado nos força a uma posição de bestialização passiva, por outro nos oferece pequenos espaços para manifestarmos nossos pontos de vista. A nossa arte é um desses espaços ‘privilegiados’”.

Cory W. Peeke was born in Sturgis, Michigan in 1968. He received his BFA in Fine Arts from Kendall College of Art and Design and his MFA from the University of Idaho. His works are included in the permanent collections of Eastern Oregon University, Lockhaven University, and the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction. Cory serves as the Director of the Nightingale Gallery and Associate Professor of Art & Art History at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, Oregon, USA. I’m a collage maker for much the same reason I’m a curator – I love images. This affection has led me to collect remnant imagery; the largely ignored and seemingly inconsequential bits of ephemera that once had a purpose, still have a presence, but now idle in disuse. I combine, layer, juxtapose, glue, tape and re-contextualize these bits and pieces of detritus in order to reincarnate and recharge them. Through the process of collage these snippets of the past combine to become at once something fresh and familiar. They both exemplify and explore the duality that is the transient, disposable nature of our culture as well as the necessity to create tradition and solidify a cultural continuity.

Musta Fior lives and works in La Rochelle, France. He composed his first collage a cloudy day in July 2010, has posted this collage on Facebook and found that persons unknown had completely enjoyed this collage. Since, Musta did not stop to cut, paste, create new images. He first made a series of thirty collages made of mixed images (with a legend as the title), then a thirty second also made from pictures cut from a major French daily. He is currently starting a series of digital collages made from images of Japan and continues to cut, paste, staging new images on paper, tries to abstraction while trying to stay poetic. It works for some time on various projects with other international collagists.

I was born in Lyon (France) in 1978. Graduated from the school Emile Cohl, I experimented and worked in many areas such as: textile design, vector illustration, the graphic design, drawing, photography etc ... I practice collage since 2010. This was a personal revolution, and this medium has become obvious. I collect old magazines, postcards and other more contemporary sources to create and mix my collages. then i work on photoshop to bring depth, shadows or to change colors.

Based in the Yorkshire Dales in the UK Josie has been an artist/gallery owner here for the last 20 years. Her work takes discarded objects from the past and through reworking them attempts to speak about the present and future. It looks at decay and preservation, makes connections between people who have long gone from this world and our current experience of the world. The work sometimes appears to have a simple narrative meaning but a corner gives way to something else and you realise there are layers of meaning and metaphor, and a line walked between darkness and light. Josie's work has been exhibited widely in the UK and has also featured in exhibitions and collections in the USA and New Zealand.

I'm a dizzy bard, a wild dreamer and a clumsy alchemist... My name is Viorel Florin Costea (vfc) and I live in Moinesti - Dada City, Romania - the place where Tristan Tzara, the founder of Dada Movement, was born in 1896. So, my nickname is dada vfc, k? I love to create collages and all kinds of paintings, including digital paintings. I really enjoy playing with forms and colors on canvas, on wood or on my laptop. I spend a lot of time mixing chromatic wishes and desires with imagination and fantasy.

Mongobì is pseudonym of Bibbiana Tanina Mele. I am an Italian artist, and I was born in Sardinia island, but I'm living and working in Florence. I have attended the Art Institute in Nuoro, and I graduated as a Master of Arts. Then I moved to Florence, and made studies at the Faculty of Architecture and then at the Faculty of History of Art graduating in Museology. After that I have specialized in Contemporary Art. Generally my creativity is mostly oriented toward the collage, photography, drawing, painting and sculpture. Much of my work revolves around the idea of waste and loss, poor materials. I'm a manual collagist. With this technique I want to affect reality, shape it, mold it as like it. With collages I always start from reality but I discussing boundaries, I change it. I rebirth the reality, I rage on her with a cutter. The practice of collage is a eulogy of the fragment, and the residual. In the same time is a desperate search for completeness.
I am a graphic illustrator and collage artist from Richmond Virginia. I began making collages for fun when I moved to New York City after college. My collages then were mainly custom 'cover' art for mix tapes that I sent to my girlfriend and other friends that I missed. My collages are a combination of both art and archeology. I slice up various resources including vintage paperback book covers, and the images and ads that are buried within the pages of the many old magazines that I have collected over the years. By taking these eye- catching images and type from their original format and reinterpreting them in collages my goal is to give them a renewed aesthetic and revived visual life.

En el año 1996, junto a mi mochila comencé un viaje, encontrando trayectos de dibujos, óleos, tintas…, donde dos años más tarde me enfrenté con un collage llamado “Desestructura”, obteniendo de su mano mi primer premio. En este camino esotérico, habitado por transparencias, cartones, tules y papeles de diarios, entre otros visitantes ocasionales, mis collages constituyen un escenario en el que actores rústicos, suaves, antojadizos y obedientes acuerdan transmitir particulares sensaciones. La investigación y el estudio constante han sido mi premisa en dicho recorrido. A través de exposiciones y concursos la comunicación mutua con el interlocutor me llevó a un cautivante juego donde el observador y el observado dejamos de ser los mismos en cada mirada. En el año 2006, esas miradas lograron que fuera seleccionada nuevamente. En la búsqueda de uno y del otro hace pocos años me introduje en el mundo del Cine con Los Retratos, teniendo como herramienta una mixtura de técnicas que me permitieron conocer profundamente la esencia humana y , como el Dr. Jeckyll y Mr. Hyde, la dualidad del Hombre. Al cautivarlos recorreremos juntos mi mundo...

KATRIEN DE BLAUWER
Emotions have always been the driving force and main consideration in what I do and make. I am also strongly drawn to the uncomfortable in human emotion, like pain, sorrow, loss, desire. It’s about life and death, what we are, what we signify, how we are loved. I like the directness of pictures and their brute presence. With my idiosyncratic, condensed cuts and pastes I try to relate a story of my own. In doing so, I find, often unwittingly, new meanings and associations, which also has a therapeutic effect on me. It’s a process of finding my own language and listening to it. Where must we hide when it comes from inside - J. Taylor

George Boya was born and lives in Thessaloniki Greece. He studied interior decoration and conservation of art in which he made his 6 month practice at the Byzantine Museum of Thessaloniki. for the past 8 years, and with starting point the need for creative expression, he creates collage artworks with a technique of his own invention based on the stained glass art that we usually see on mediaeval churches. His prime materials are photographs which he defrags in order to isolate the parts that he would use in order to create the new artwork. His inspiration comes from the works of the old Masters, religion, science, everyday life and the main theme of his artwork is always human centred.

Arantxa Rueda, Así es ella, handmade collage, 2012.
I'm an illustrator from Athens, Greece. I work with the Indyvisuals Design Collective. I make collage work, both handmade and digital. I usually work with old sewing magazines of the 70's and 80's but sometimes I combine them with new glossy paper cuts and I like to add ink and acrylics in the pieces. I'm always trying to find the right balance between these materials. The mix of the old and new fascinates me. Usually there are figures involved, I'm interested in all the distortions a human, and not only, can have. My digital work has the same structure, I use scanned images, painted papers and make the composition in photoshop, giving them a handmade feel. I love both types of work, I combine them a lot, I think graphic design can be very artistic.

FEMKE VAN DER RIJST
I was born in 1982 in Utrecht, Holland where I still live today and am working on preparing for my first solo exhibition.
For the last 5 years almost all my cut & paste has been self-portrait. My work is handmade and non-digital. When I started making collages it was about expressing myself. In a sense collages worked as therapy. Nowadays it’s about the aspiration to create freely and share that outcome with the world. I work from a place of spontaneity, intuition and fantasy. I just love a puzzle, making images and words work; discovering alignment where there was none, gives me such satisfaction.
Call me crazy but it is my I strong believe that everything I bring together, the meeting of lines and the perfect blending of images, is meant to be. The blueprint of it is already here. All I need to do is see the alignment and glue it together.

Born and raised in the blue collar oasis of Pittsburgh, PA amid dense green canopies, five hundred bridges, deep frozen arctic winters and sweltering tropical summers, K Mackowick’s art and life have been shaped by both their beloved home and locales thousands of miles away.
Creating fantastical depictions out of the intriguing residual energies of other times and places captivates Mackowick, who draws inspiration from nature, the elements, cultural icons and archetypes, apocalyptic imagery, colors, adventure, the road, and the emotions surrounding people and relationships. Amongst everything else.

ARI CHÁVES CHACÓN
She was Born in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 1988 and studied Spanish litera-ture. While she was studied, disco-vered a huge interest in other artistic disciplines, besides literature, like photography & films. From the inter-vention in photographs came out the idea of making collage, as a hobby, and later born the idea of making collage with just old magazines & news-papers. Inside her artistic “politic”, she likes the old school way of making collage, just with paper magazines, scissors and glue because “paper gives a unique texture & also a lot of melancholy”.

Laila Manieri não pertence a um estilo específico, somente a uma técnica: a colagem. Percorre de maneira indepen-dente seu caminho ao mesmo tempo intelectual e emocional no terreno da colagem. Desde muito jovem tem este gosto de fazer recortes e colagens de diversas imagens, dando a ilusão de movimento e de recomposição da figura com contextos sociais, estéticos e pes-soais. Mas somente a partir de 2008 começou a construir seu estilo e a publicar suas obras. Atualmente mora em Porto Alegre/RS, onde tem criado novos olhares artísticos e da própria essência da arte em sua vida.
