These hand-crafted collages from Venezuelan illustrator Carlín Díaz are a sweet little ode to the days of the week. Created by using old sketches and coloured paper, Carlín’s collages have a wonderful depth and character to them with wide-eyed, symmetrical figures depicting his ideas.
Each image plays with our perceptions and emotional attachments to the different days of the week, for instance Monday details someone with their head down still sleeping, Saturday is a sultry character in his pants and a party hat ready for a good time, and Sunday is a full face of tears, distraught about the start of the working week ahead.
Based in Paris, Carlín experiments with shapes with a very graphic sensibility, and we applauded his personal style back in 2015 with his animations and digital-based illustrations. Still managing to achieve the same aesthetic through collage, the illustrator plays around with depth and shadow through clever layering and different hues of paper.
