Franz Falckenhaus' Vintage Collages Are Naughtier Than They First Appear (PHOTOS)


Polish artist Franz Falckenhaus never had any formal art training.

Perhaps his outsider status is what makes his collaged cut-ups so intriguing, as they resemble the marriage of a Man Ray photograph and an old edition of LIFE magazine. Using vintage illustrations and found materials, Falckenhaus creates digital collages that are witty, naughty and everything in between. Pin-ups appear demonically possessed while buff, retro athletes gain supernatural capabilities.

Check out some of the works below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. For more trippy collages, we suggest perusing the work of Jim Kazanjian or Bruce Helander.
