What you see is not what you get

GLIL is a collage and street artist living in London, UK, who is best known for the intricate reconstructions of famous images using thousands of pieces of paper. “What you see is NOT what you get. You look closer and it’s always something else, always something new. it should give a strange feeling of a beautifully organized anarchy, like an imminent explosion.” Glil is recomposing some of the most famous images and iconic portraits in our society with materials that lose their value and relevance very quickly, like newspapers, magazines and flyers. The “Recycled Celebrity” series is about the metamorphosis of these dying objects into an integral part of the expression of beauty, genius, celebrity and immortality. “You can almost call it alchemy when you are transforming one person’s throwaways into other people’s treasures.”
