Joachim Sperl’s mischievous collages piece together an abundance of colours and images with tongue firmly in cheek. Explosions of tiny figures are carefully arranged into abstract and pretty trippy compositions. Expect animal heads and the odd naughty body part!

A rearrangement of found images, hand-drawn marks and an interest in seeking out new textural pieces give these collages by Nate Kitch a great mix of contrasting elements. The different parts are placed with meticulous care, giving the effect of being both minimal and bold.

Glitchy digital interference creates these wonderfully eerie textures in work by Emir Šehanović, aka Esh. Various filters and distortions rework hand-mand and digital collages with an element of unease.
