Contact us if you would like us to arrange additional framing'Spaghetti' is a brand new original artwork by Kareem Rizk an Australian born self-taught collage and mixed media artist now living and working in Denmark. Informed by his background in graphic design, his affinity for typography and his interest in re-purposing printed ephemera, Kareem’s highly-textured and multi-layered works evolve from an intersection where fine art and design cross over.“As I explore the printed remnants of the promises of post-war culture and advertising, I reach for weathered elements and found imagery that resonate with me both on a visual and emotional level. My aim is to construct tactile representations of transitory feelings or visions that emerge as I sift through an ever growing collection of collage material. I allow my source material to present aesthetic directions in a process of cutting and pasting that is free flowing and immediate"

About Kareem Rizk

Kareem is a contemporary collage and mixed media artist creating highly-textured and multi-layered works. Collecting found imagery from the promises of post-war culture and advertising, Kareem selects images that resonate with him on a visual or emotional level. He then arranges, rearranges, crops, cuts, folds, tears, scratches and peels back pieces to find interesting connections that reveal an ongoing visual dialogue between graphic design and fine art.The aim of his practice is to construct tactile representations of the transitory feelings or visions that emerge as he sifts through a vast array of age worn ephemera. His source material presenting aesthetic directions in a process of cutting and pasting that is free flowing and immediate, but at the same time visually coherent and deliberate.After every selected piece of collage is eventually fixed into place through a series of calculated movements, it is the viewer who ultimately completes the work by constructing their own individual stories based on what they observe.“Collage is something that’s emotional, it’s about feeling and it's about memories. Feeling what elements work with each other.”
