ART: Psychedelic Architectural Collages by Hugo Barros
These sick collages by Libson-based artist, Hugo Barros, use images with extremely different environments to form grand landscapes. The artworks combine otherworldly graphics with realistic scenes to create mind-bending other-worldly portraits.
“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” - Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
Do not simplify. Do not worry about failure. Failure is a badge of honour. It means you risked failure.
