Photomontage has existed as an art medium since long. It was a technique first used in 1915. It was later adopted by the surrealists who exploited the possibilities photomontage offered by using free association to bring together widely disparate images, to reflect the workings of the unconscious mind. Over the years many artists have incorporated many mediums and material. Today, digitally-made photomontages offer a new way of exploring the medium.
Many are the artists who utilize this technique as a space for experimenting with the images. Others are painters who make use of found materials to add texture and meaning to their works. They’re all sure to offer inspiration.
