Hong Kong-based illustrator Kayan Kwok‘s latest is a surreal series of banana collages meant to pay homage to the American pop culture advertisements of the 1920s-1960s she admires so much. The series is part of her 2014 a poster per day project which mixes contemporary and retro design elements. Certainly a much different way to use bananas in art than the tattooed bananas by End Cape we featured previously.
Using black and white vintage photos juxtaposed with colorized bananas and other pieces results in final posters which are quite fascinating to examine. With such oddly selected combinations, the collages are unpredictable, with many producing quite curious results. A selection of Kayan’s surreal banana collages is below, if you’d like to follow along with the poster per day project visit her website or follow her on Instagram, Facebook, and Behance.

By combining vintage photographs into surreal collages, artist Sammy Slabbinck takes us into a complete new, bizarre world. Sammy takes a number of source photographs, cuts them up, and then rearranges them with particular interest being paid to juxtaposition to create stunning visual scenes. His alignment of different pieces with vastly different proportions and contexts than the original photograph they came from combines to challenge the viewer’s modern ideals with traditional states of mind. Finally, he uses muted tones to further emphasize the vintage nature of the photographs his pieces are sourced from. For more of Sammy Slabbinck’s art, follow him on Facebook, Twitter, or tumblr. Prints are available at Saatchi Art.
