The humorous collages of Zeren Badar

Zeren Badar

Some of my favorite art is that which makes me laugh. When most people traditionally think of art we think of old world masterpieces painted with oils depicting those that have been long dead. So what if you took those venerable works of art and put a ridiculous twist on them? You’d end up with these lighthearted series of collages from Zeren Badar.

Combining photos, painting, and collage, Zeren makes these great pieces which frame classic works in a new light: humor. Sometimes its food, sometimes colorful shapes, these random objects make what might have been a stodgy painting something new and kind of hysterical. You can see his full series by clicking here.
