Reality Meets The Surreal in Hugo Barros’ Trippy Collages

Hugo Barros

Portuguese artist Hugo Barros has a gift when it comes to the art of collage. His hand-crafted works create fantastic compositions that are filled with cosmic imagery and surreal sights. He shows skyscrapers that burst from desert dunes and waterfalls that cut away to reveal giant volcanic clouds below. A trip through his portfolio is a journey into a strange and magical place and it’s a journey that comes highly recommended.

Reminiscent of the work of Agnes Montgomery (who created Panda Bear’s Person Pitch album art); Hugo’s creations possess a similar playfulness and energy. What I love most about them is how he manages to combine the surreal with the mundane. His images show reality overlapping with the bizarre and it’s a winning combination!
