Mr Chillin'

Hello, dear Friends!
Last Saturday, I proudly presented two new superbly talented members of my Creative Team.
Today, I'd like you to meet another new friend of ours. :) This cute little guy was created by Marta's incredible imagination. I promise you will be amazed by how she turned ordinary objects into magic...


Hello everyone.
Today I would love to share with you my mixed media assemblage work.
Have you ever heard of the term: assemblage art ? Assemblage is an artistic process. In the visual arts, it's making three-dimensional or two-dimensional artistic compositions by putting together found objects.
I remember seeing assemblage creations for the first time... it was love at first sight.
I adore the idea of putting together found objects. You can create any sort of dimentional pieces. You can mix metal, wood, plastic and more.

I created a mini assemblage canvas with Mr Chillin (name given by my friend) :)


Usually assemblage creations are left bare, no added colours. I decided to add my own touch to this technique and add some colours. :)


If you take a closer look, you will see some interesting objects there - screwdrivers, tiny goggles or earphones.
You can mix and match many different elements to create your composition.



If you would like to see my creative process, please check out my video tutorial.
I hope you'll feel inspired to look around your house and maybe create a little assemblage friend yourselves! :)
Love, Marta x

What were the metal squares with the blue backing that you used?

Marta,
This is amazing, I have three grandsons who I have a hard time making art for. They get very jealous that the girls get art and they don't. This could be one for a boy. Now I'm thinking airplanes too maybe. Thanks for the inspiration. I throw away most things so now I'm going to save them.

I was enchanted with this process. Thank you Marta for sharing
your talent with us. I have always collected bits and pieces of

and now I am so inspired to try my hand at this assemblage.
Keep sharing please.

Oh my my, thank you so much for such an amazing feedback, you just made my day my friends ! I am so happy to see you have enjoyed this creation. Yes, I agree it can make a great boy's gift, as it is hard to create some boyish designs. Answering your question - Those silver rectangular pieces are tire weights! :)

Marta,
I love Mr. Chillin' - he is absolutely wonderful! Thanks for the video - I thoroughly enjoyed watching Mr. Chillin' come to life. Don't you think he might need a Mrs. Chillin'? Thanks so much for sharing your art!

He is amazing. It was so much fun working out what you used before I scrolled down. I got some right :D

Linda Devine said...

This is very cool - I love it and will have to create one of my own :)

Nirvana said...

EXCELLENT!!!!!

Марина Мелких said...

Привет! Восхищаюсь! Вопрос можно - а чем Вы приклеивали объемные и металлические предметы - плашечки, кружочки и особенно отвертки? Меня всегда волнует этот вопрос - не хочется, чтоб у клиентов в работе моей потом отваливались детальки.
