Collage, a weekly live art event, has taken place in New York for the past four years. Collage is run by Savior Elmundo, a professional artist. Elmundo describes Collage as a New York art movement. It gives artists a space to work in and showcase their work to the public simultaneously.
Alex Reynoso, an artist that moved from California to New York over two years ago, has been a regular at Collage. stated, “I’m inspired by other artists at Collage. We learn different styles and techniques from each other. In this short time Collage has given me an outlet to create. I’ve gone from being a corporate artist in advertising and marketing to becoming a full time artist working for myself. It’s still a struggle, but I’m doing what I love.”
The artists that attend Collage are given a different theme every week to paint to. This weeks theme was ‘Pin Up Girls’. Among the art we found paintings of the famed Josephine Baker and Marilyn Monroe.
So head out to Collage, take some friends, have a drink and dinner while being entertained by live painting. Maybe even take a new piece of artwork home with you!
