In her editorial style collages, Rocio Montoya, Madrid based visual artist, tells a compelling story conveyed via portraits and photographic scenes. The concepts of the photographic collages incorporate facets of art, graphic design and fashion.
Montoya is a talented photographer, graphic designer and artist who creates multimedia collages that blend elements from surrealist and cubist schools of thought.
The botanical patterns fragment the subject in a fit of chaotic beauty. These fragmented images capture an emotional experience between the subject and its aesthetic interpretation of the surrounding environment. The visual creates a compelling narrative about the human body in synergy with nature.
According to her website, Montoya:
immersed herself in the field of visual arts by curiosity to express her concerns and the need to seek beauty as a means of escape and personal enjoyment. Her admiration for painting and surrealism is evident in addressing their creations, which you can see a clear trend to recreate atmospheres and distant situations to pure documentary reality, characterized by a delicate, haunting and poetic graphic style.
Lauren is based in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to writing here on Pursuit of Daydreams, Lauren’s daydreams consist of all forms of design: Graphic, Fashion, Web, Interior, Art. On any given day, she can be found preoccupied with at least one of the above. She is happiest with a bowl of ice cream in hand.
