As I walk along a street or see an image of a street or a human, I place different objects on it in my mind. It just happens every time. Maybe because I have seen too many collages since 2015.
Basically, I cut and then paste different things together in Adobe Photoshop until I find it visually appealing.
I play with colours, shape, and scale to do so. There is no proven method for the process.
I fail most of the time as imagination is easier than finding the appropriate objects or images.
For the collages of vintage Dhaka, I used the images from old time that were juxtaposed with colourful objects such as flowers, watermelon, orange, etc.
I try to tell stories and spread awareness with some of the collages and I have plans to make more of them.
Essentially, surrealism, futurism, and sarcasm dictate the process of making the artworks. I am a hobbyist with very little amount of knowledge. I just want to give people visual treats through my creation.
