Art for Everyone

Art for Everyone Series by collage artist Megan Coyle
The other day I decided to try something a little different - collaging words and phrases. Instead of cutting out strips of colorful, textured paper for portraits or landscapes, I decided to focus on words.

This new series was inspired by some of my previous work, like the above collage called "Snowflakes." "Snowflakes" was a commissioned piece where I cut out bits and pieces of black paper to make the lettering for an Alice Childress quote.

This new text series is called "Art for Everyone," where I'm collaging art or art-related words and phrases. Instead of focusing on one color for the text, I'm using a variety of textures and colors. I'm also experimenting with different ways of making letters look more like simple shapes.

I like these. Your eye for texture, shape and colour is still shining through the apparent simplicity.
