collage artist -> Leigh Smith

Otherworldly. Alien. I can think of a few ways to describe the surreal collages coming from artist Leigh Smith. Each collage is thoughtfully handmade, and they all seem to have a retro sci-fi aesthetic to them. Much more work to be seen on his portfolio site.

In simple terms, it changes the *feel* of a physical surface, e.g., allowing a smooth tea pot to […]

They seem to have the […]
