Inspiration Mix: Showcase of Mixed Media Art

November 16th, 2010

Collaboration is a beautiful thing. Two or more different approaches harmoniously coming together to create something more than any one of them could have achieved on their own. Such is often the source of the awe that inspires our breath to be snatched away by mixed media artwork. Multiple artistic mediums crossing paths and coming together in order to craft a piece of art that collaboratively conveys its message. This is one of the reasons that mixed media speaks to so many, because it is not confined to one medium from which to appeal to the viewers.

So today we are reaching across various artistic mediums to bring you an inspirational showcase from artists who have adeptly combined methods in their work. Through these works we can perhaps find a flame of inspiration that will take our creative approach outside of our usual means and methods for a fresher end result. It might even stir us into reaching outside the normal comfort zones we routinely work from to blend other methods into our projects. Take a look below at the showcase of both mixed media artists and individual pieces to get your fires burning.


Here are some artists who have many mixed media skills and pieces in their portfolios that we simply had to bring together to feature here in this showcase.
