Hi Hart Beat. Welcome to the newest installment of the new Instacrush series that I’ve been holding here on ye’ old blog. Pervious series highlights have included photographers Cambria Grace, Fawn DeViney and the brilliant man behind The Dogist. Today I want to share with you a brilliant New York artist who is taking Instagram to the next level by displaying his incredibly funny and breathtaking collage work via iPhone photography.
I discovered Kalen Hollomon through a couple of different art blogs and was particularly struck by this interview that the artist gave for the Capsule show’s website. The beauty of Holloman’s work comes from using vintage and current advertising and using them in the familiar snapshots of New York City. The images are placed so perfectly into the frame that even seeing Holloman’s fingers propping the cutout up adds to the charm of these images. Lucky for us, Holloman posts a few of these magic works of art daily on his Instagram feed @kalen_hollomon. This is one that you should most definitely check out Hart Beat.
