Using only paper and magazine strips, artist Megan Coyle manages to create unique collages that look and feel like real paintings.
Washington-based Megan Coyle is a college artist and designer who creates beautiful artworks with magazine strips. Using her experience as a painter and writing, Megan managed to “become a storyteller with images where I illustrate narrative scenes from everyday life.” The way she cuts and glues the magazine strips hints at the distinct brushstrokes she once used in her painting.
Although I was trained in painting, over the years, I was consistently drawn to collage. I believe that my attachment to the medium is rooted in the way I approach every subject as an artist. I’m constantly breaking down what I see into smaller pieces, piecing together each area bit by bit, occasionally stepping back to see the work in its entirety.
