Anarchy: Cut and Paste

By Jo Phillips

The art world is saturated with collage artists, but once in a while someone surfaces and blows all of the rest out of the water. Milan based artist Luca Mainini  creates collages and gifs that will send your brain into overdrive. Strongly centred in fashion and pop culture, Mainini cuts up popular images of lipsticks, blinking eyes, lips and legs, to create other worldly, alien like creatures that we can’t help but fall in love with.

With a client list including Thom Brown, Anna Dello Russo, Givenchy and Dolce and Gabbana, it is safe to say that the fashion world is truly lapping up this outrageous gif madness.
