Anthony Zinonos’ work – which we first came across after featuring Wicca who represent him – is whip-smart and great fun to boot. The Norwich-based collage illustrator uses found materials to great effect, arranging flat geometric colour planes, human figures, and all manner of other visual imagery to create images that immediately engage. His work also involves a considered and extremely effective use of negative space; different compositional elements relate to each other, certainly, but the page isn’t overwhelmed by visual data – each element is thereby granted freedom, and yet they all inter-relate to compose very successful bigger pictures.
Juxtaposing disparate elements, Zinonos also emphasises the tearing and cutting inevitably involved in photo collage. rippingRACER and justGOtalkTOher, for example, feature pictorial elements – the exhaust fumes and the shoreline, respectively – that are in fact tears in the background colour-plane. Properly awesome.
