This is definitely happening as our first project for level 2 art! Hits so many great concepts in one without being overwhelming. Could combine with drawing in place of photo of student by teaching proportions of face and b&w reversal.
French artist Matthieu Bourel, based in Berlin, makes wonderful collages from actors’ photographs such as Gregory Peck, and also famous actresses and singers. With a surrealistic and sculptural dimension, he decomposes, pastes and detaches the different parts of a body or a smooth face.
