Recently Stumbled upon esteemed Portuguese artist Luis Dourado and instantly got intrigued by his unique and apparent way of approaching collage.
Chiefly exploring the idea of collage - although not loyal to any specific technique - Dourado oscillates between digital and analogue techniques from series to series, producing often quite abstract compositions using everything from coffee to glitter.
Whether that takes the form of creating pattern in colour from book pages, slicing up and re-constituting maps, or disguising famous faces; I think his work has an intriguing mystery that unifies it, all leading back to the graphically pleasing appropriation of unknown original images.
