Creating collages or photo mashups with a completely new approach. With CutoutCam you can use your environment like a colour box:
Take a photo, cut out a hole and take another photo to fill it.
By repeating this process and using any material/object — wood, glass, metal, etc. — you can create stunning artworks in little time.

For how long are you working with collage art now and what was your reason to become a collage artist?

At the beginning, it seemed like a good exercise to develop my composition skills. With the time it became a hobby, an activity to express myself. I like the idea of taking random elements to create something new; it’s like giving a second chance to the images and elements that I cut out.

Would you consider yourself mainly a collage artist or do you prefer working with other techniques as well?

Collage is a technique that makes me feel very comfortable when it comes to create art. I do experiment with other techniques, but I haven’t decided if publish them or not, since they’re in an “experimentation stage”. Anyway, I hope I can publish them someday.

What tools / materials / software do you use for your collages?

For digital collages I use Photoshop and scanned elements. For handmade collages I use scissors, glue, cutter, different kinds of paper and tons of magazines.

In art, what is your favourite epoque / your favourite art movement, and why?

I don’t have a favorite époque in art’s history; I consider each époque particularly interesting. The same with the artistic movements.

Do you have an artist whom you admire and whom inspires you?

Sure! Gustav Klimt, Eduardo Recife, Conor Harrington, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Seniorita Polyester, Lola Mora, Gustave Doré, Alexander Rodchenko, Frida Kahlo, David Carson, Gil Elvgren, Frank Shepard Fairey, Banksy.

What are your main inspirations, or how do you get inspired?

Life itself, people, friends, animals, design, art, muses, movies, music, Buenos Aires.

Does music have any influence in your work process? (And, if so: What kind of music do you like to listen to? Any favourite song or artist or genre?)

I don’t know if music has a direct influence in my work, but is fundamental for the process, I can’t work in silence. Some of the bands that inspire me are Massacre Palestina, Foo Figthers, Etta James, Eddie Vedder, Sublime, Interpol, Sumo, Patricio Rey y los redonditos de ricotta, Pulsion Do Moi, Pulmon, Kings Of Leon, Guns n’ Roses, Queens of the Stone Age, Gustavo Cerati, Julio Sosa, Piazzola, Fuerza 3.

Is there a quote you always carry with you in your mind, heart, notebook, mobile phone or wallet, that describes or inspires you?

“Surely all art is the result of one’s having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further.” Rainer Maria Rilke

Do your Works always have a meaning, or are they senseless compositions?

All compositions have a meaning, some are plainer than others, and some of them have a personal meaning.

    Dear artist,

    why most of your collages have theme the woman, even her body or her face/portrait? There is an important influence that leads to this?
