Collage is such a flexible artistic medium that no matter what skills you master and what materials you use, you will be able to create amazing collages. All the things we know in drawing or painting, such as perspective, color, and composition can be thrown away. The only limitation is your imagination. This book traces collage as a technique back the ancient China, as an artist pursuit to the 20th century when Cubists established its utmost position in modern art and Surrealists pushed it forward to depict the subconscious world, and as a way of teasing during the Pop Art movement. For beginners, this book also includes a whole section for collage creation and displays a large number of collage works.

Since the end of the 19th century, our aesthetics have been challenged by various avant-garde artistic ideas, especially astounded by the chaotic visuals. But there are many more stories behind the chaos in art. This book digs into chaotic art heritage in human history, and features the most exciting graphic designs distinguished with chaotic styles, which have been broken down into four different approaches: distortion, redundancy, diversity, and randomness. As a tribute to the chaotic art refined by the courageous predecessors, as well as an applause to the chaotic visuals nourished by our contemporary designers, it serves as a bridge between artistic ideals and graphic communication, between puzzled readers and expressive designers.

If visuals could scream, wail or attack, what would they be like? Maybe you can find the answers in this book.
