Kareem Rizk

Another new inspiring artist I can add to my mental inspiration board.
Kareem Rizk is a Melbourne based collage artist and designer who has worked for Melbourne‘s No.1 selling newspaper, The Herald Sun, as well as numerous large and small freelance clients. Kareem’s working techniques and mediums include collage, acrylic, oil pastel, pencil, solvent transfers and acrylic transfers. He creates highly textured and often multi-layered images, predominantly with a nostalgic or vintage and weathered quality. His works can often be vibrant with color, while others display a very refined or minimal palette. His working methods also extend to digital collage with a very gritty and realistic display of texture and layering.

karim rizk collages can be found at at blue flip art . all are archival giclee prints in the 9" x 12" range and are $24.95 each. as with kareem's earlier bird series, 10% of every print sold will go to the startlight children's foundation of australia.
