Collage Artist - Not sure where I fit in..

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

My name is Mikhail Siskoff and I'm a collage artist from Anchorage Alaska. I do mostly analog (hand cut) paper collages from vintage magazines and books such as old school textbooks that I find at thrift stores, usually from the throw-away bin, so I'm giving these materials new purpose. I try to create imaginative, surreal images that spark curiosity. I started to do collage about 2 years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it and I think I'm getting better all the time. So far I've done an art show at a local restaurant/bar and I've been featured in my local indie paper's art and entertainment section where I had a double page feature as well as the cover! I've also been commissioned to create cover art for that same paper several times. I do commission work upon request and all originals are for sale unless marked otherwise. I do some digital work and some analog film photography with antique film cameras as well. Please follow me on social media and check out my website below. Contact me if you'd like to collaborate on projects, I'm open to new ideas.

Hey, that's some really cool art, thanks for posting your listing!

I see you remove the head or obscure the eyes in a lot of your collages, is there a reason for that?

Welcome Mikhail. Interesting work and thumbs up for the recycling. Arjen also asked this about removing the eyes or obscure the eyes, is it to anonomize those people or do you have an artistic reason for that?

I also really like your work, it's really unique! Hope you can find a way to get to be known by larger audiences via the ABY platform! Welcome to the forums as well!

Thanks for the compliments everyone, I really appreciate that! Yes, I mostly cover eyes and remove heads for anonymity or sometimes expressions don't work with what I'm trying to create. Thanks again!

After looking over you work again, I was wondering about if you've done collaging that involved your own pictures as well.

I saw you had some photo manipulation and digital collage pieces, but do you have any analog pieces of your own photography.  I think works that are made partially or entirely of your own photographs could make for some nice compositions and maybe even juxtaposition in combination with those old magazine pieces.

If you do have some and I skipped past them I'm sorry about that, but it would be neat to see what you could do with that.
