    Bryan Olson: Collages

Bright, trippy collages here from the fantastic Bryan Olson

Posted by Liv Siddall,

I like it when art can transport you to another time or place, particularly if it takes you somewhere you haven’t even been in real life. Bryan’s collages take me to my bedroom, but I’m a 15-year-old boy living in suburban America and I’ve just smoked weed for the first time and I’m listening to Jefferson Airplane on my bed like the guy at the end of Dazed and Confused. Elegant, dream-like and totally hand-made, this is proof that you don’t need a whole bunch of technical equipment and a studio to make great art, just some old magazines, scissors and glue.
