Born and raised in Vancouver, BC I found myself closely connected to the mountains and associated lifestyles of cycling, camping, hiking, and snow sports. Documenting these activities and the people involved has always been my focus.
I relocated to Calgary for my schooling and my largest fear was the separation I would face from the Coast Mountains. This fear drove me to embrace the foothills and moved my attention closer into the Rocky Mountains and my focus began to expand, documenting the landscapes, forces of nature and animals.
Now that I am back in my home of Vancouver, I feel I have brought a broader understanding of environments back with me and a larger understanding of visual communication.
Focusing on innovative concepts, combined with a meticulous attention to detail I seek to portray the emotion and feeling of the environments through my images.
About > Activities
Jesse Treece is a collage artist living in Seattle, Wa whose work screams of the simple, yet ever complex, interpretations of both the mundane and whimsical facets of life. He’s somehow managed to mix both the regular and absurd, beautiful and disturbing and put them into images that you find you could get lost in for hours. His tools of the trade include scissors, glue and vintage magazines/books.

Follow the Collage Art of Kareem Rizk - Official fan page on Facebook:
Born in Australia in 1982, Kareem Rizk is a Melbourne-based collage artist, illustrator and designer who graduated from Monash University in 2004 with a Bachelor in Visual Communication.
After graduating, Rizk’s creative interests began to turn to fine art and illustration, particularly mixed media collage. While working as a Graphic Designer at Melbourne’s No.1 selling newspaper, The Herald Sun, his interest in collage continued to develop and by 2006 it became a focus of his endeavours.
Since his shift of focus to fine art and illustration in 2006 and his pursuit of developing his style, Rizk has gained extensive international recognition and has been noted as one of the contemporary masters of collage, as well as one of the premier mixed media artists working today.
Working mediums include collage, acrylic, oil pastel, pencil, solvent transfers and acrylic transfers. The work is highly textured and often multi-layered with a nostalgic and weathered quality. Rizk’s works can often be vibrant with colour, while others display a very refined or minimal palette.
Working methods also extend to digital collage with a very gritty and realistic display of texture and layering. The digital work began as an experiment in blurring the line between handmade collage and digital collage.
Other work includes freelance illustration, design and art commissions for various clients including news and editorial publications, galleries, university institutes, the boutique fashion industry and the music and entertainment industry.
Exhibitions include solo shows and group shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, Miami, London, Stockholm, Zurich, Barcelona, Madrid and Milan. Rizk's work has been published in numerous high profile art magazines and books and his work is held in private collections worldwide.
