Then and Now: Guy Catling’s Vintage Collage Work

 

Classic and edgy combine in this series of collages by artist and graphic designer, Guy Catling.

Vintage photos exude elegance, especially those that come in black and white; but UK-based graphic designer Guy Catling had no plans of leaving them at that.

Catling is a big fan of collage work. He started by cutting out snippets from newspapers and magazines and mashing them together to create different art pieces. Now that he has graduated from paper cuttings, permanent markers and other media, he has ventured into digital art to transform vintage photos into edgy pop art collages.

The artist starts by gathering black and white vintage photos on the Internet. He then adds his quirky brand of patterns, shapes and illustrations into the cut-out parts. The resulting images are eclectic and hip at the same time.

From dapper gentlemen draped in the latest woven patterns, to military men in flowery uniforms and helmets, Catling’s handiwork adds a youthful contrast to the monochrome images.
