A collage (From the French: coller, to glue) is a work of formal art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
A collage may include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or hand-made papers, portions of other artwork, photographs, a piece of moss or even a dead mole and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.
The term collage derives from the French "coller" meaning "glue".[1] This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art. [2]

She is 35 years old female with a very creative mind. I noticed her for the frist time, when an invitations of an event on facebook appear on my notifications. it's called "A Poskart Projekt", art on poskart. I get curios about the event and the currator, so i follow the link and go to her blog. Suddenly i get WOW-ed and amazed by her fancy blog. She is really good and sooooo talented (no wonder she being asked to do an art exhibition by RURU Gallery). So sad I can't attend this art exhibition :(

I check her blog and read all the archives. Every piece of the art that she working on was so great. I love her collage style (I know nothing 'bout collage -_-). The piece I love the most is this

really nice combination, between the girl, the horse and the color paper, I just like it. So guys if u really like Collage art, or u wanna know more about collage please visit her blog :)
