Alex Eckman-Lawn is an artist living and working in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Alex has been an illustrator for years, creating work for several comics and bands like Maruta, Krieg and Nesseria. Lately Alex has been focussing on something else: intricate, paper 3D collages. These diorama like illustration are really gorgeous: inspired by vintage illustration they show a surreal, 3D abstract perspective. Alex on his collages:
“My collage work is about ownership and control, organizing the chaos and uncertainty of my life into orderly prisms. In cutting through the layers of paper, I am given the opportunity to play both surgeon and architect, for once in complete control over what lies inside.”
Thanks for reading! What do you think of Alex’s work?
