Javier Piñón

Sooo I'm sitting here at uni, trying to finish off everything for end of year assessment. 
.....waiting for things to print, up-load, and "fingers crossed" please please please work out!!! 

I recently handed in an essay on my topic of Fashion and Collage, and from my research I came across the wonderful artist; Javier Piñón. 
What I find so magical about Piñon's work is his ability to blend both the dream like state with something more real, more sinister.  The combination of the Greek Myth and also the Wild West is fantastic, and truly enjoyable! It also suggestion of a more modern-day references to these ancient stories and characters like Medusa, the Sirens and the Minotaur. 
This blending of mythology and idolized figures is a collage of its own, and is only further enhanced by the use of retro imagery and Piñón's analytical eye.
