Art can never be confined but expressed and is the most beautiful form of expression but when we say this, we contradict the article we would be talking about in this very notion.
It is indeed a masterpiece but hauntingly beautiful for it portrays the realism of humanity. We have often seen artistic and eye pleasing collages on social media and is no more an alien thing to any of us.
But the ones we will now see are definitely disturbing, evoking and thought provoking.
Ugur Gallenkus, an artist from Istanbul, Turkey created a digital collage series that shows the perfect contrast between the ‘happy’ world and on the other hand, a world that needs not much introduction for the noise of destruction is way too loud already.
The pictures in the collage presented by the artist gives a crisp fight to the rants we often write, speak and share about the atrocities we face as the daily chores which are comparatively nothing in front of what the people in the darkest of places are currently facing.
Also the bittersweet perspective of things that include nature, science, life and death have been beautifully presented.
Gallenkus collected several images which were too very random and people used to come across such things every single day while surfing the internet or sitting in front of the television.
But his vision was different. He conveyed a solid message through the pictures or say collages he created with the help of Photoshop or with his precise photo editing skills using the images all over the internet. He collected images about everything, of life, of death, of peace, of war, of skies, of waters, of men and inhumane.
It was nowhere close to the claptrap we often see and hear but some real sensical stuff captivating us all undoubtedly.
So let us all try finding inspiration and motivation in every bit of it.
Here we go.
