Artist Eddy Ruswanto creates collages with paper and paint. He uses paper media magazines with other materials like canvas, wood and plywood. In the collages you can see words and phrases from the original magazines used. The words are applicable to the celebrity’s image in the portraits. For example, the collage of Mother Theresa contains the phrase ‘the Power of Love.’

Celebrity portraits take on more meaning with the words they’re comprised of. If you look closely enough, you’ll see much more meaning than the average photograph. The collages are of famous people who are known globally. Marilyn Monroe, Mother Theresa, Bob Marley and Daft Punk. are just some of the subjects. Each person featured has made an impact on society. The effects reach us today. The collage and paint combination gives more meaning and depth to these portraits.
