Handmade collages by Molokid
Molokid is the alter ego of this freewheeling, rather off balance graphic designer of Buenos Aires. He finds a way to escape from the daily routine through his handmade collages. These act as an outlet, in which he works relations of forms, colours and textures. In his collages, Molokid seeks to construct and to destroy morphologic relations between the elements that interact in the composition, looking for a dialogue between the parts that shape the whole of the artistic piece. Vintage magazines, paper clippings, cutting elements and glue replace computers. It´s all about leaving the comfort that digital retouch programs offer and returning to the handcrafted thing. This way, manual experimentation is prioritized over conceptual subject matter. His work has been displayed in art galleries in Buenos Aires, and abroad.
