Instagram of the Day: Photo Collages by Riccardo Schirinzi
Italian artist combines elements of photographs and gives them new meaning.
Italian artist Riccardo Schirinzi publishes collages, which he creates from his own photographs, on his account @charli_davoli.
“Most of my fun comes out when I play with paradoxes, when I mix up real environments together with unreal interference”, — the author says in his CityLab interview.
Schirinzi says that he gets a lot of inspiration for his photo illustrations from the works of artists Giorgio de Chirico, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
| | [ • utopia of harmony • ] | | Very proud to introduce you this collab with Michele Mariano (@mic75mariano) a talented photographer that I surprisingly discovered coming from my same hoods. I am totally in love with his oneiric works, especially in this shot featuring @marikaplerario as the most perfect underwater model.
Both winners This collaborative photo was shot by @impalero and edited by me as part of the #Fantasy_Friday collaborative group. Every other week we all edit the same photo, putting our own ideas of "fantasy" into the edit. The group's goal is to experiment, have fun, and see how different people interpret the same image. You can see the original photo, and the other team members' edits for this week here: #Fantasy_Friday_70.
Phase in to life: the metaphor of an earnest vibrato 3/4 Here we are. This work is part of a series for a limited edition signed print to be released by the label Loyal To Your Dreams. The set is prefixed ‘Phase in to life’, to describe my imagery moving from the digital realm of Instagram to the physical world. It will feature 4 different images of which only 1 will be printed in the end. The exciting part (I hope!) is that you get to decide which work will be embodied in a 50x50cm high resolution fine print with classy mounting (\o/). We will keep track of likes, comments, and a final vote on the closing post after all the works have been published. The one that will receive the biggest appreciation will be released by Loyal To Your Dreams and available from their site: www.loyaltoyourdreams.com.
For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was much about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons. (Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
