Powerful, surreal collages offer a new identity to found images

James Springall is a London-based collage artist that creates thought-provoking works from found images. For James, the significance of working in the medium of collage is to provide a new identity to found images, whilst translating a message through what might initially appear chaotic.

The artist's passion stems from a love of old magazines, which he realised were treasure troves of interesting imagery and raw creativity. And so, armed with these vintage publications, glue and a pair of scissors, Springall began his craft.

His work will feature in a group exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in January 2017. Discover more at jamesspringall.com.
